Hi,

I would like to know what key-management solutions have been
proposed/tested for DTNs.
If I want to design a key-management solution for DTNs then which resources
should I consider.

I came to know about this 'problem' from the NASA topcoder challenge:
http://www.topcoder.com/dtn/security/

I am pursuing MS by Research and thinking of deciding upon this topic for
my MS Thesis.

Regards,
Ishan Sharma
