Hi, 

Will it be feasible to base the solution for Key management based on policy (like policy based routing) .. 

We can broadcast the policy within a domain, and Then we can perform security services..(The broadcasting can be made deterministic or efficient using complex algorithms)... 

1. Please comment on this option for Having key management for DTN networks.. 
2. Will it be a best scenario to show heterogeneity of DTN to have different network regions connected together, showing sensors, satellite and internet... 

Looking forward for your comments... 

thanks..
