In this paper, the authors address the problem of multipath routing in wireless mesh networks. Here they present a class of MCB problems in Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) with multi-path wireless routing protocols. They establish the provable superiority of multi-path routing protocols over conventional protocols against blocking, node-isolation and network-partitioning type attacks. In their attack model, an adversary is considered successful if it is able to isolate/capture of a subset of nodes such that no more than a certain amount of traffic from source nodes reaches the gateways.
