In most networks, it is simple to find the identity of participants communicating with each other or to link packet flows together. Our objective is to develop a proactive routing protocol for ad hoc networks preserving the anonymity of the nodes as much as possible and assures the unlink ability of packet flows between two given nodes. In order to develop practical solutions, we propose to accept that the identity of the nodes would not be perfectly hidden. This work is a joint work with Christophe Bidan (Supelec-Rennes). This work will be presented at HotWisec 2013.
