Abstract: A mobile peer-to-peer network (MOPNET) has drawn increasing attentions for its communication convenience and ease of resource sharing in an unfixed infrastructure. The essential requirements for applications in a MOPNET are to enforce trust of transmitted data and security of peers. However, most of mutual anonymity protocols for a MOPNET lack integrity protection, and hence, any peer might suffer from some potential security threats such as virus-infected or Trojan horse files. This paper proposes a mutual anonymity protocol with integrity protection for a MOPNET, in which the initiator and responder anonymously share data with each other, and ensure its integrity.
