In this letter, we propose a hybrid authentication algorithm to alleviate the latent security problems of mobile multi-hop networks. The proposed scheme uses centralized authentication when a node first joins the network, and uses distributed authentication for the hop-by-hop authentication among multi-hop nodes. We also analyze performance of the proposed scheme.
