Table 1 Characteristics comparison between existing protocols

From: Address allocation for MANET merge and partition using cluster based routing

  Address evenness Routing dependency Distributed operation Address uniqueness Address stability Approach
Agent based addressing (Günes and Reibel2002) Yes No Centralized Guaranteed Low stability Stateful
MANET Conf. (Nesargi and Prakash2002) Yes No Distributed Guaranteed High stability Stateful
Prophet (Zhou et al.2003) Yes No Distributed Not guaranteed Not specified Stateful
Buddy protocol (Mohsin and Prakash2002) No No Distributed Guaranteed High stability Stateful
Strong duplicate address detection (Perkins et al.2001) Yes No Distributed Not guaranteed Not specified Stateless
Weak duplicate address detection (Vaidya2002) Yes Yes Distributed Guaranteed with high Probability High stability Stateless
Passive duplicate address detection (Weniger2003) Yes Integrated within the routing protocol Distributed Guaranteed with high Probability High stability Stateless
Adhoc IP address autoconf. (Jeong et al.2005) Yes Yes Distributed Guaranteed with high Probability High stability Stateless
Hybrid centralized query based auto-configuration (Sun and Belding-Royer2003) Yes No Semi centralized Guaranteed High stability Hybrid
