IEEE 802.11 networks are insecure. Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP), the security mechanism used in 802.11, was proved to be vulnerable. IEEE 802.11i, the security enhancement, concentrates only on integrity and confidentiality of transmitted frames. Either version did not properly handle the network availability. Because management frames are not authenticated, {802.11, 802.11i} networks are susceptible to Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. In this paper, we designed a random bit authentication… CONTINUE READING
