Abstract Based on present technology, it is a challenging task to provide anonymous communications in mobile ad hoc networks. There are several problems that must be addressed properly. Security and performance concerns are the main challenges. Chaum's Mix method can effectively prevent an adversary's attempt of tracing packet routes and hide the source and/or destination of packets. However, applying the Mix method in ad hoc networks may cause significant performance degradation due to its non-adaptive Mix route selection algorithm. The goal of this project is to develop a Mix route algorithm to find topology-dependent Mix routes for anonymous connections. We have named the protocol that will be implemented MixRoute. The protocol is implemented in ns-2 [27]. Test scripts are developed to make a simulation.
