One of the key components of IEEE 802.11i authentication protocol to defend against various malicious attacks is its 4-way handshake scheme. However, since Message 1 in the handshake scheme has not been protected by the Message Integrity Code (MIC), the original 4-way handshake scheme specified by the IEEE standard is vulnerable to the Denial of Service (DoS) attacks and DoS flooding attacks. Several countermeasures have been proposed in the literatures to prevent these attacks. However, they… CONTINUE READING
