A wireless mesh network can be seen as a special type of wireless ad-hoc network. A wireless mesh network often has a more planned configuration, and may be deployed to provide dynamic and cost effective connectivity over a certain geographic area Wireless mesh networks often consist of mesh clients, mesh routers and gateways. In wireless mesh network security of network is one of most concerned area. Here the authors have proposed a new approach to maximizing security of a network basically they have worked on DOS in which they have shown applied their approach in wormhole attack. The wormhole attack is one of the most severe security attacks encountered in wireless ad hoc networks.
