Abstract: In this paper we describe a novel anonymous on-demand routing protocol for wireless Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) that is secure against both nodes that actively participate in the network and a passive global adversary who monitors all network traffic. Finally, we provided a detailed analysis of the privacy offered by hiding routes in limited broadcast groups, and padding messages.

Keywords: anonymity; routing protocols; mobile ad hoc networks; wireless MANETs; cryptography; mobile networks; on-demand routing; wireless networks; anonymous routing.
