In this paper, a secure data transmission scheme based on multiple paths for mobile ad hoc networks was presented. The scheme focused its attention on privacy and robustness in communication. For privacy, a coding scheme using XOR operation was established to strengthen the data confidentiality so that one can not uncover the information unless he took up all the K paths or special K-1 ones. For robustness, it educed a fault tolerant mode which combines backup with checkout, and planed a prepared distributing algorithm, by them the transmission can tolerate multiple path’s dropping with moderate data redundancy, ideal path utilization, and quick data recovery.
