In this research, we propose to modify and extend epidemic routing used in intermittent networks. In particular, we propose to include immunity-based information disseminated in the reverse once messages get delivered to their destination. The goal is to design a more efficient routing protocol in terms of resource utilization. The idea is to analyze and evaluate the network performance using an immunity scheme in the context of epidemic routing and its variants. The reverse dissemination of such information requires minimal resources and the tradeoff in timely purging of delivered messages can be significant. We are using ns2 to implement a detailed simulation of the proposed immunity-based epidemic routing.
