Executive Summary

This paper analyzes the differences between "Classic IP networks" and MANETs, emphasizing interface, link, topology, and addressing assumptions present in "Classic IP networks," and presents a model for how this can be matched to the specific conditions of a MANET - i.e., how MANETs can be configured to adhere to the Internet addressing architecture. Then, a MANET auto-configuration protocol, enabling automatic configuration of MANET interfaces and prefix delegation, is developed. This protocol is characterized by adhering strictly to the Internet addressing architecture, being able to configure both MANET interface addresses and handle prefix delegation, and being able to configure both stand-alone MANETs, as well as MANETs connected to an infrastructure.
