The DTN architecture document (RFC4838) discusses DTN security, and
there are a couple of internet drafts (draft-irtf-dtnrg-sec-overview-05
and draft-irtf-dtnrg-bundle-security-06).

 

There's not been a lot of work done in how to do key management in
DTNs.  Perhaps someone more knowledgeable than I could reply with a
concise description of the problem and issues.

 

There's also no satisfactory (IMHO) resolution between the Bundle
Authentication Block processing and reactive fragmentation.
