Misbehaviour Metrics in WiMAX Networks Under Attack

Much effort has been taken to make WiMAX a secure technology. Due to its broadcast nature, WiMAX is more susceptible to security threats than a wired network. In this paper, the authors give a general overview of the security architecture and possible attacks that a WiMAX network may face. For each type of attack the misbehaviour metrics that may vary under these attacks are listed. This paper can be used to select an appropriate threshold for detecting attack and can be applied to future research on IDS.
