The plugin is not very well tested regarding sclability, so there might be
various issues. The implementation is also kind of a quick and dirty and
could use an overhaul, but it should work :-) You can read more about it
at:

I don't know if the plugin is much used - perhaps other olsr-users
subscribers have experimented with it?

Oucth... That dosn't sound too promising. Let us know of your results if
you test the secure plugin. Note that a MD5 implementation can be compiled
directly into the plugin so that there is no dependency on openssl(for
SHA-1 you'll need openSSL).
