The performance of Wireless Mesh Networks under realistic conditions is not well understood. Given the huge design and parameter space for these networks, all-encompassing performance evaluations are unfeasible. We follow a practical approach and perform a targeted, in-depth investigation of the current state of the BATMAN Advanced (batman-adv) protocol in(More)
IEEE 802.11s is an emerging standard for wireless mesh networks. Networks based on IEEE 802.11s directly benefit from existing security mechanisms in IEEE 802.11. This limits the attack surface of IEEE 802.11s significantly for adversaries that cannot authenticate with the network. Mesh networks are, however, often conceived for community network scenarios,(More)
The Pastry [2] Distributed Hastable (DHT) provides decentralized peer-to-peer services in a scalable and efficient manor. Peers do not have to provide links to each node in the network, but only to a small subset of nodes. Due to this, lookup requests for services offered in the peer-to-peer system mostly can not be sent to the destination directly, but(More)
