Worldwide Interoperability For Microwave Access Technology (WiMAX), broadband wireless communications cosidered as one of the most growing and developing technology in the field of telecommunications[1] . Mobile multi-hop relay (MMR) Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) networks uses Relay stations (RSs) to extend the cell coverage and enhances the link quality and the throughput . In MMR WIMAX networks, the number of hopes between the subscriber Stations (SSs) and the Base

Wireless networks are inherently less secure compared to their wired counterparts due to the lack of physical infrastructure. In this paper the Self Organized Efficient and Authentication Key management protocol (SEAK) were modified, the proposed protocol introduces different service levels according to user needs .
