As more and more mobile devices interconnect through large scale IP networks, new network architectures become important. A Virtual Private Ad Hoc Network (VPAN) provides such architecture in which network virtualisation and ad hoc networking techniques are combined. A VPAN consists of a distributed set of entities of which the composition can change over time. This dynamic membership is self-organising, meaning that the members need to discover each other.
