Abstract: Anonymous communications are important for many applications of the Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) deployed in adversary environments. A major requirement on the network is to provide unidentifiability and unlinkability for nodes and their traffics. The existing protocols are vulnerable to the attacks of fake routing packets or denial-of-service (DoS) broad- casting, even the node identities are protected by pseudonyms. In this paper, we propose Anonymous Secure Routing Protocol for Multi hop Wireless Mesh Network (ASRP) to protect the attacks and multi hop secure data transmission in WMN. ASRP offers anonymous connections that are strongly resistant to both eavesdropping and traffic analysis. The key-encrypted onion routing is designed to prevent intermediate nodes from inferring a real receiver node. Simulation results indicate that the efficiency of the proposed ASRP protocol with improved performance as compared to the existing protocols.
