Detection of Rogue Base Stations in Wimax/IEEE802.16 Using Sensors
This paper considers the problem of detecting rogue base station in Wimax/802.16 networks. IEEE 802.16 is an emerging standard for broadband wireless communications that is receiving a lot of attention. Security support is mandatory for any communication networks. For wireless systems, security support is even more important to protect the users as well as the network provider. Since wireless medium is available to all, the attackers can easily access the network and the network becomes more vulnerable for the user and the network service. The rogue base station puzzles a set of subscribers who try to get service which they believe to be a legitimate base station.
