Admittance Control System for Community Ad Hoc Networks Based on OLSRv2
Source: Ecole Polytechnique
Ad hoc networks have left the confines of research: community ad hoc networks, such as the FunkFeuer network in Vienna or the FreiFunk network in Berlin, have exceeded the size of several hundred routers each. Both these networks run the Optimized Link State Routing Protocol (OLSR), which itself do not provide security protection of the network integrity. Certain assumptions and legal requirements for these networks require to design specific security solutions, but also allow to create simpler security mechanisms than for the general case of ad hoc networks.
