The olsr-secure plugin use four new messages:
type 10: (must be last message of an olsr package)
  encrypted signature and timestamp of a package
type 11:
  authentification, step 1
type 12:
  authentification, step 2
type 13:
  authentification, step 3

36 bytes sounds really to short.

4 bytes for package header
12 bytes for message header of signature
24 bytes for the flags, timestamp and the signature itself
( I think the time_t is a 4 byte value)

but why should olsrd try to send out an empty package ?
do you have a hexdump of the package ?
