A Predictable Opportunistic Network (POppNet) is a network where end-to-end connectivity is not guaranteed, and node communication happens in an opportunistic manner, but the behavior of the network can be predicted in advance. The predictability of such networks can be exploited to simplify some mechanisms of more generic OppNets where there is no prior knowledge on the network behavior. In this paper, we propose some solutions to provide anonymity for messages on POppNets by using simple onion routing, and thus to increase the privacy of the nodes in communication.
