Abstract

WIRELESS Mesh Network (WMN) is a promising technology and is expected to be widespread due to its low investment feature and the wireless broadband services it supports, attractive to both service providers and users. The nodes in the WMNs can configure automatically and re-configure dynamically to maintain the mesh connectivity. One of the fundamental challenges in WMNs is how to achieve Anonymity and traceability for mobile node. Anonymity has received increasing attention in the literature due to the users’ awareness of their privacy nowadays. Anonymity provides protection for users to enjoy network services without being traced. In the existing architecture trusted authority issues the tickets to the client, it increases the client’s storage overhead and adversary attacks. To avoid this, a new system in which the trusted authority provides single Ticket to the client during the ticket issuance protocol based on the user profile which is included in agreement and it includes the renewal field for deposited Ticket. It increases the client connectivity with its home trusted authority with considerable anonymity and traceability. Thorough analysis on security and efficiency is incorporated, demonstrating the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed architecture.
