This specification updates [RFC6130] and [RFC7181] by defining mandatory-to-implement security mechanisms (for integrity and replay protection). A deployment of these protocols may choose to employ an alternative(s) to these mechanisms; in particular, it may choose to protect packets rather than messages, it may choose to use an alternative Integrity Check Value (ICV) with preferred properties, and/or it may use an alternative timestamp. A deployment may choose to use no such security mechanisms, but this is not recommended.

Integrity Protection for the Neighborhood Discovery Protocol (NHDP) and Optimized Link State Routing Protocol Version 2 (OLSRv2)
This document specifies integrity and replay protection for the Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) Neighborhood Discovery Protocol (NHDP) and the Optimized Link State Routing Protocol version 2 (OLSRv2). This protection is achieved by using an HMAC-SHA-256 Integrity Check Value (ICV) TLV and a Timestamp TLV based on Portable Operating System Interface (POSIX) time.
The mechanism in this specification can also be used for other protocols that use the generalized packet/message format described in RFC 5444.
This document updates RFC 6130 and RFC 7181 by mandating the implementation of this integrity and replay protection in NHDP and OLSRv2.
