Anonymous technology is an effective way for protecting users’ privacy. Anonymity in sensor networks is to prevent the unauthorized third party from revealing the identities of the communication parties. While, in unstable wireless sensor networks, frequent topology changes often lead to route-failure in anonymous communication. To deal with the problems of anonymous route-failure in unstable sensor networks, in this paper we propose a fully anonymous routing protocol with self-healing capability in unstable sensor networks by constructing a new key agreement scheme and proposing an anonymous identity scheme. The proposed protocol maintains full anonymity of sensor nodes with the self-healing capability of anonymous routes. The results from the performance analysis show that the proposed self-healing anonymity-focused protocol achieves full anonymity of source nodes, destination nodes, and communication association.
