Deterministic DTNs are networks where the behavior is known in advance or where a repetitive action occurs over time like in public transportation networks. This work proposes the application of an onion routing approach to deterministic DTNs to achieve anonymous communications. We show how the prior stage of path selection in onion routing can be achieved using the information provided by deterministic networks.
