A protocol to perform service discovery in adhoc networks is introduced in this paper. Attenuated Bloom filters are used to distribute services to nodes in the neighborhood and thus enable local service discovery. The protocol has been implemented in a discrete event simulator to investigate the behavior in case of a multihop mobile ad-hoc network with nodes that all have services to offer. Methods to optimize the used bandwidth, which is a scarce resource in wireless networks, are investigated. Experiments performed with the simulator suggest that the proposed service discovery system enables users to find local services in a multihop ad-hoc network efficiently. The costs for advertising can be kept low, whereas the additional costs for queries set due to so-called false positives are moderate.
