The present disclosure relates to the detection of duplicate network node identifiers. Specifically, each node (network element) maintains a digital signature which is exchanged with other peer nodes. The other peer nodes maintain a hash table with the digital signature of all discovered nodes. One node can be designated as a primary node to validate all discovered digital signatures to ensure there is no duplication.
