Executive Summary

Wireless Mesh Networks (WMN) are finding increasing usage in city-wide deployments for providing network connectivity. Mesh routers in WMNs typically use multiple wireless channels to enhance the spatial-reuse of frequency bands, often with multiple radios per node. Due to the cooperative nature of WMNs, they are susceptible to many attacks that cannot be defeated by using traditional cryptographic mechanisms of authentication or encryption alone. A solution approach commonly used for defending against such attacks is behavior-based detection in which some nodes over-hear communication in their neighborhood to determine if the behavior by a neighbor is legitimate.
