Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) are currently the subject of much research. WMNs are not Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs); instead they are a superset of MANETs. WMNs may exist in the absence of a central infrastructure taking the form of a MANET. However on the other hand, they may exist as networks comprised of an infrastructure connecting extended ad hoc networks. One significant area of research within ad hoc networks is routing and in particular, the securing thereof. Owing to the characteristics of WMNs however, routing algorithms designed for ad hoc networks however may not always be applicable to WMNs.
