The currently proposed anonymous routing mechanisms for mobile ad hoc networks enable network entities to anonymously and securely communicate with each other. However, protocols that provide a high level of anonymity generally have poor scalability due to delays and overhead introduced by cryptographic operations, while other approaches sacrifice anonymity to achieve better performance. In this paper, the authors propose a novel anonymous routing protocol that provides improved anonymity and security while achieving similar or better performance, as compared to existing proposals.
