  4. Abstract:
  5. Mobile ad hoc networks allow to create very dynamic communication systems, which are independent from any fixed infrastructure. One of the most important issues regarding the management of an ad hoc network is the configuration of the system according to the way users move. Since a centralized control structure does not exist, we need to determine how the IP addresses must be assigned to the nodes in the network. In this paper we add a security mechanism to VASM protocol based on zero knowledge approach. A hash function has very low running time. So this so this scheme is very light-weight. The VASM protocol uses coordinate value of point in main address sheet for generating addresses. The performances of this solution are evaluated through the Behavioral simulation, which allowed us to check the correctness of the protocol and to estimate the control traffic generated under different operating conditions. © 2009 IEEE
