Wireless networks are vulnerable to identity spoofing attacks, where an attacker can forge the MAC address of his wireless device to assume the identity of another victim device on the network. Identity spoofing allows an attacker to avail network services that are normally restricted to legitimate users. Prior techniques to detect such attacks rely on characteristics such as progressions of MAC sequence numbers. However, these techniques can wrongly classify benign flows as malicious with… CONTINUE READING
