Detection and Localization of Multiple Spoofing Attackers in Wireless Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Wireless spoofing attacks are easy to launch and can significantly impact the performance of networks. Although, the identity of a node can be verified through cryptographic authentication, conventional security approaches are not always desirable because of their overhead requirements. In this paper, the authors propose to use spatial information, a physical property associated with each node, hard to falsify, and not reliant on cryptography, as the basis for detecting spoofing attacks; determining the number of attackers when multiple adversaries masquerading as the same node identity; and localizing multiple adversaries.
