In this paper, we modify and extend epidemic routing used in intermittent networks such as delay tolerant networks (DTNs). In particular, we propose to include immunity-based information disseminated in the reverse direction once messages get delivered to their destination. There are many variants of epidemic routing that are intended to result in better resource utilization by reducing the number of copies or through the use of sophisticated forwarding policy. Our focus is to use the… CONTINUE READING
