Our definition for mobile ad hoc network of networks (MANoNs) are a group of large autonomous wireless nodes communicating on a peer-to-peer basis in a heterogeneous environment with no pre-defined infrastructure. In fact, each node by itself is an ad hoc network with its own management. Based on the Recommendation ITU-T M.3400 security management consisting of security administration, prevention and detection of malicious nodes and containment and recovery is considered to be one of the major problems MANoN is facing. This paper proposes a novel behaviour detection algorithm combined with threshold cryptography digital certificates to satisfy prevention and detection to securely manage our system. This technique will be evaluated using network simulator NS-2 to provide and check whether security requirements are met in a comprehensive manner.
