The integration of various network-level functions, including routing, management and security, is critical to the efficient operation of a mobile ad hoc network (MANET). In this paper, we discuss the design and implementation of a new ad hoc routing protocol, a suite of solutions for policy-based network management, and approaches for key management and deployment of IPsec in a MANET. These solutions, in turn, were integrated with real-time middleware, a secure radio link and a topology monitoring tool. We briefly describe each component of the solution and focus on the challenges and approaches to integrate these components in a cohesive system to support network mobility. We evaluated the effectiveness of the system through experiments conducted in a wireless ad hoc testbed.
