Wireless ad hoc network is autonomous, infrastructure less and may be mobile depending on its type of application. Secure transmission of information in wireless ad hoc environment is an important concern. In this paper, the authors propose to use shared cryptography to secure message communication in ad hoc network. In this approach they divide any information into multiple shares and transmit the different shares via multiple disjoint paths between any pair of communicating nodes and if possible at different point of time. At the receiving end the original information is reconstructed by combining the shares received via different paths at different point of time.
