Signature and Database Exchange for Wireless OSPF Interfaces

In this paper, we specify a mechanism for link-state database exchanges in wireless ad-hoc networks. The mechanism is taylored for ad-hoc networks employing the wireless OSPF interface extension specification , however is suitable for any proactive link-state routing protocol.The database exchange mechanism is specified with the following applications in mind: \begin{itemize} reliable diffusion of link-state information, replacing OSPF acknowledgements with a mechanism, suitable for mobile wireless networks; reduced overhead for performing OSPF style database exchanges in a mobile wireless network; reduced initialization time when new node(s) are emerging in the network; reduced overhead and reduced convergence time when two (or more) WOSPF adhoc network clouds merge. \end{itemize}
