Wireless mesh network (WMN) has emerged as a key technology for a numerous number of applications because of its ease of deployment, low cost and flexibility of use. WMN infrastructure is a multihop network where mostly the nodes are static in nature. Preserving identity privacy is an important issue in this type of multihop WMN which has been given a little attention in the research community. Compromising privacy may lead an attacker to reveal user's identity, his profiles and gain
