Abstract: We present a technique for security proofs for on-demand routing protocols. The idea is to break down the security requirement against the protocol into the security requirement against a single honest protocol machine. The practical income is a simplified approach that provides also guidelines for designing provably secure protocols.

Keywords: cryptanalysis; ad hoc routing protocols; provable security; security assessment; on-demand routing protocols; security proofs; cryptography.
