In wireless networks nodes are interconnected with each other with the help of base stations. A base station takes messages from number o nodes and forward to destination node also if a node needs any message then it takes that message from base station. When messages were transmitted through intermediate nodes then security leakage chances may increases so to secure transmission of messages is a challenging task for researchers. There are different types of attacks such as black hole attack,

Detection of byzantine attack is difficult because it is more complicated attack then other attacks because it combines all the features of existing attacks such as black hole attack and denial of service attack. In this paper an attempt has been made to propose a enhanced CBDS mechanism to detect and prevent byzantine attack. The main idea behind ECBDPS technique is to discover faulty nodes on the path from the source to the destination by verifying reply packet (RREP) through database of previously stored detected and alarmed list.
