In wireless mesh networks (WMNs), preserving users' privacy is an important but contradictory to security issue. To provide a new solution to the challenge, we propose an anonymous authentication scheme based on CPK and blind signature in the elliptic curve domain. The proposed scheme can not only provide fast and explicit mutual authentication between nodes, but also effectively preserve mesh users' privacy. The analyse result indicates that the proposed scheme successfully satisfies both security and privacy.
