Access control concerns in MANETs are very serious and considered as a crucial challenge for operators who prospects to employ unrivaled capabilities of such networks for different applications. The authors propose a novel hierarchical distributed AAA (Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting) architecture for proactive link state routing protocols notably OLSR. This proposal contains a lightweight and secure design of an overlay authentication and authorization paradigm for mobile nodes as well as a reliable accounting system to enable operators to charge nodes based on their connection duration time.
