Nowadays, the adoption of ad hoc networks is growing very quickly, but their approval in a working context requires improved security. Indeed wireless connectivity and mobility are the source of the main security issues. This paper is to design a secure collaborative architecture for ad hoc networks using smart cards in order to support new applications enabled by these networks. The goals of this short paper are to introduce the important definitions which characterize the context of their work and some key concepts that they would like to develop in their framework.
