In the last few years, Delay/Disruption Tolerant Networking has grown to a healthy research topic because of its suitability for challenged environments characterized by heterogeneity, long delay paths and unpredictable link disruptions. This paper presents a DTN security architecture that focuses on the requirements for lightweight key management; lightweight AAA-like architecture for authentication/authorisation; resilience to Denial of Service attacks and user anonymity.
