DTN Neighbor Discovery Protocol ChallengePosted By: National Aeronautics and Space Administration This is the 5th challenge in the DTN challenge series! The goal of this challenge is to update Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN) "ION" implementation so that it includes IP Neighbor Discovery (IPND). IPND is a method for otherwise oblivious nodes to learn of the existence, availability, and addresses of other DTN participants. IPND both sends and listens for small IP UDP announcement beacons that are addressed to an IP unicast, multicast, or broadcast address to discover specified remote neighbors, or unspecified local neighbors in the network topology.
