Subject: [dtn-security] Newbie seeking some security related advice


Someone recently asked me to look into a secure, ad-hoc, DTN network. It is likely to be a voice network, probably with SMS and possibly also some video.



If this is a voice Network, is this really a DTN or is it a Disconnected Ad Hoc network?  In other words, how much disruption and disconnection do you have on a per node basis?  I believe DARPA is using DTN for voice networks but I believe the disruption is expected to be very quick fades and the like or perhaps that voice simply will not make sense at certain times.
