The characteristics of mobile ad hoc network result in necessity of using the simulation for verification of newly proposed concepts in mobile ad hoc networks. Traditional network simulators are oriented towards low level simulation, which leads to various difficulties when these simulators are used for simulation of high level aspects of mobile ad hoc networks. This paper proposes the use of multi-agent programming language NetLogo for simulating high level aspects of mobile ad hoc networks. Applicability of this tool is demonstrated by simulating and evaluating security criteria of various public key infrastructure approaches in mobile ad hoc network in NetLogo.
