In this paper we present a new secure routing protocol for mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) based on AODV called AODV-SEC. Our security approach is using certificates and a public key infrastructure as trust anchor. To verify the correct functionality of the protocol we implemented it in the NS-2 simulator using genuine cryptography and performed extensive simulations and performance evaluations. In addition we present the need for a new certificate type for secure routing in MANETs called
