Mobile ad-hoc networks are composed of heterogeneous mobile systems. Securing their communications may be difficult due to differences in the supported algorithms and protocols. In this paper we propose a protocol to negotiate security settings for the communications. This protocol aims at minimizing the power consumption and at providing the highest possible security level associated with the communications.
