The Internet of Things (IoT) devices have the capabilities to interact and communicate in 5G heterogeneous networks. They also have the capabilities to form a network with neighborhood devices without a centralized approach. This network is called the mobile ad hoc network (MANET). Through an infrastructure-less system of the Internet of Things environment, the MANET enables IoT nodes to interact with one another. Those IoT nodes could interactively connect, communicate as well as share knowledge between several nodes. The role of cloud throughout this structure is to store as well as interpret information through IoT nodes. The communication security has been introduced as one of the techniques to solve the data transmission security issue that could result in increased performance in cloud consumption and ubiquity. The purpose of this research is to establish a communication system among IoT nodes in an embedded Cloud and MANET structure. Aiming to create an efficient and secure approach for communication in Cloud-MANET-IoT integrated framework, this approach has been implemented and tested.
