This paper presents the idea of authenticated key management with pairing in Mobile Ad hoc networks MANETs. A mobile ad hoc network is an autonomous collection of mobile devices (laptops, smart phones, sensors, etc.) that communicate with each other over wireless links and cooperate in a distributed manner in order to provide the necessary network functionality in the absence of a fixed infrastructure. Key agreement protocols are essential for secure communications in open and distributed environment. The study of tripartite key agreement has great theoretical and practical significance. Based on bilinear pairing and MA (message authentication) schemes, an improved secure tripartite authenticated key agreement protocol is proposed. In this paper we study proposed protocol and enhance the key strength according to simulation performed in MATLAB.
