This document specifies integrity and replay protection for the
Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) Neighborhood Discovery Protocol (NHDP)
and the Optimized Link State Routing Protocol version 2 (OLSRv2).
This protection is achieved by using an HMAC-SHA-256 Integrity Check
Value (ICV) TLV and a Timestamp TLV based on Portable Operating
System Interface (POSIX) time.

The mechanism in this specification can also be used for other
protocols that use the generalized packet/message format described in
RFC 5444.

This document updates RFC 6130 and RFC 7181 by mandating the
implementation of this integrity and replay protection in NHDP and

This document is a product of the Mobile Ad-hoc Networks Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
