Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

44 Scopus citations


Wireless mesh networks promise to extend high-speed wireless connectivity beyond what is possible with the current WiFi-based infrastructure. However, their unique architectural features leave them particularly vulnerable to security threats. In this article we describe various forms of sophisticated attacks launched from adversaries with internal access to the WMN. We further identify possible detection and mitigation mechanisms.
