Providing privacy is often considered a keystone factor for the ultimate take up and success of mobile ad hoc networking. Privacy can best be protected by enabling anonymous communication and, therefore, this chapter surveys existing anonymous communication mechanisms for mobile ad hoc networks. On the basis of the survey, we conclude that many open research challenges remain regarding anonymity provisioning in mobile ad hoc networks. Finally, we also discuss the notorious Sybil attack in the context of anonymous communication and mobile ad hoc networks.
