Underwater Acoustic Networks (UANs) adopt acoustic communication. The opening and sharing features of underwater acoustic channel make communication in UANs vulnerable to eavesdropping and interfering, and UANs appeal for higher security. This paper presents a secure and depth-based anonymous routing (SDBR) protocol tailored for UANs. Based on bilinear pairings and hash function, by involving limited computation and communication resources, SDBR protocol achieves the backward and forward secrecy for underwater depth-based routing protocol. Theoretical analysis shows that SDBR protocol can provide identity confidentiality, location privacy and routing anonymity as well as decrease computation and communication costs.
