Several types of Routing Protocols for mobile ad hoc networks have been proposed recently for their application in various areas such as military, government and many other fields. In this paper, we have proposed a comparative study of various routing protocols for mobile ad-hoc networks particularly emphasizing on its security aspect. Furthermore, we have discussed the comparison among existing routing protocols for MANET. Main factor for comparison is routing methodologies and knowledge required to make routing decisions. The comparison is made on the basis of the following factors: integrity, confidentiality, authentication, nonrepudiation and availability. Analysis of the secured version of proposed routing method has been done on the basis of the five security requirements and the same has been shown in the comparison tables.
