I'm not sure what you mean by this... OLSR has no knowledge of regular 
data traffic being sent(and lost), if that is what you mean.

None. A security plugin for olsrd, providing integrity and 
non-repudiatin,  exists - which was something I developed as part of my 
master thesis. You can read about it here:
http://www.olsr.org/docs/report_html/node156.html
However - this is very preliminary and "proof of concept" stuff. No 
standarizations exists(for OLSR AFAIK, I think there is a draft for 
Secure AODV around...).
