Abstract

IEEE 802.11 WMN is an emerging next generation low-cost multi-hop wireless broadband provisioning technology. It has the capability of integrating wired and wireless networks such as LANs, IEEE 802.11 WLANs, IEEE 802.16 WMANs, and sensor networks. This kind of integration: large-scale coverage, decentralised and multi-hop architecture, multi-radios, multi-channel assignments, ad hoc connectivity support the maximum freedom of users to join or leave the network from anywhere and at anytime has made the situation far more complex. As a result broadband resources are exposed to various kinds of security attacks, particularly DoS attacks.
