In this paper we propose a self-configuring framework for mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). Our architecture is based on the degenerated use of network address translation (NAT) where each node locally builds its “private address map”, i.e. its own view of the addressing plan of the entire MANET. In contrast to previous schemes, MANET nodes do not need to coordinate in order to generate unique (IP) addresses. A key aspect of our scheme is that routing is based on names rather than on addresses as the latter play a debatable role in ad hoc networks. While this requires nodes to choose unique names, we show how a simple yet efficient distributed scheme can solve this problem by generating dynamic names based on a set of keywords locally defined by each MANET user. We discuss the architectural impact of this approach in the bigger context of names, addresses, routability, and self-configuring networks, and report on our implementation.
