This paper provides a novel security solution for hybrid mobile ad hoc networks. The solution relies on secure network configuration, which is based on the use of preconfigured self-certifying identifiers stored into a portable memory device by a trusted party, to be attached with ad hoc network nodes. Mutual authentication is carried between the friendly neighbour nodes based on the self-certifying identifiers, resulting a safe subnetwork inside the local ad hoc network. The route discovery is carried only in the safe subnetwork through trusted nodes, and therefore the route found always goes only via trusted nodes.
