A Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a kind of wireless communication system that doesn't have base stations or routers. The wireless connections can be a standard Wi-Fi connection or satellite, or another medium such as a cellular transmission. Specific applications like military or public emergency require secure group communication in ad hoc environments. Good key management is very important to get protection in any communication system. This paper presents most problems of securing key management in ad hoc networks.
