You will have to change babeld to only consider a slice of the network.

You can run hundreds of babeld inside small openwrt VPSes:


You can also use LXC.

>> - ability for public babel network to survive attacks

OLSRd had some encryption key for the packets, don't know for Babel.

About metrics, there was the idea to export infos from the radio layer
(especially from the linux kernel), don't know if this is possible
right now with the latest kernel changes.

"In July 2005, after several failed attempts to legalise software
patents in Europe, the patent establishment changed its strategy.
Instead of explicitly seeking to sanction the patentability of
software, they are now seeking to create a central European patent
court, which would establish and enforce patentability rules in their
favor, without any possibility of correction by competing courts or
democratically elected legislators."
