Technical Summary This document analyzes common security threats of the Neighborhood Discovery Protocol (NHDP), and describes their potential impacts on MANET routing protocols using NHDP. Working Group Summary The process for reaching working group consensus on this was smooth; no controversy existed. Working group consensus behind the document is solid. Document Quality This document does not specify a protocol, therefore no implementations are available. There are several NHDP implementations existing, and the WG has a thorough understanding of the protocol and its security considerations.
