Nowadays, many advanced are developed and become available for users. So, the demand for a higher data rate wireless access significantly increases. For that reason, new cellular wireless networks have been introduced such as Long Term Evolution (LTE), LTE-advanced and Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX). However, the centralized topology of these technologies requires that the users have a direct connection to the Base Station (BS). Such topology suffers from many limitations such as congestion problem when a large number of users are communicating at the same time with the BS. In this context, the Device-to-device and the mobile relays communications have been proposed to overcome the limitations of the conventional cellular architecture. So, the key building block of the Multi-hop Cellular Networks (MCNs) is the multi-hop routing of data from the source to its target destination. In this paper, we propose a new Secure Routing Protocol for Multi-hop Cellular Networks (SRP-MCN). The goal of the proposed work is to discover secure and short routes between the source and its target destination in a secure way. To analyze and validate our proposed scheme, some simulations are performed based on Network Simulator (NS-2). The obtained validation results show that our proposed scheme outperforms the existing protocol named Anonymous and Authenticated Routing Protocol for Multi-hop Cellular Networks (AAR-MCN) in terms of end-to-end delay, throughput and Normalized Routing Load (NRL).
