This paper studies the security for Voice over IP in peer-to-peer (P2P) networks. Instead of taking a general approach to security in P2P, we focus on a specific use case, namely private (e.g. military) mobile ad hoc networks. This allows for security measures that are not necessarily applicable to general P2P networks, but elegantly solve the issues in the given context. We propose security measures for two different approaches to the P2P version of the Session Initiation Protocol in such networks, provide their implementations and present results from performing experimentations in a simulator.
