Anonymity is still a challenging issue in mobile ad hoc net-works. Specially although operating as groups is required by many of ad hoc applications, there is only a little work on anonymous multicast routing algorithms. In this work authors propose an Anonymous Multicast routing protocol for ad hoc networks called AnoMul based on the underlying uni-cast routing protocol ANODR proposed by J. Kong et al. AnoMul is a mesh based multicast routing protocol in which authors propose some mechanisms to achieve the privacy goals.
