Abstract(in English) We propose an efficient IP address assignment protocol for mobile ad hoc networks, which use a table-driven routing protocol. In this IP address assignment protocol, a node repeatedly broadcasts an Agent Request to ask for address assignment. If there are one or more neighbor MANET nodes, one of them becomes an agent to select and assign an IP address to the requesting node. We introduce the notion of distance in the IP address space so that each agent maintains its own exclusive address range to be used for address selection, resulting to decrease the possibility of address duplication. If the requesting node cannot discover any neighbor MANET node over pre-determined random agent-search time, it selects by itself IP address at random from the pre-determined address block. We present the basic IP address assignment protocol and enhanced one in this paper. We evaluate IP address assignment performance by computer simulation. It is shown that the enhanced IP address assignment protocol outperforms the basic one in terms of the percentage of duplicate addresses under various conditions.
