In this paper, the authors propose to design a cross-layer based intrusion detection technique for wireless networks. In this technique a combined weight value is computed from the Received Signal Strength (RSS) and Time Taken for RTS-CTS handshake between sender and receiver (TT). Since it is not possible for an attacker to assume the RSS exactly for a sender by a receiver, it is an useful measure for intrusion detection. They propose that they can develop a dynamic profile for the communicating nodes based on their RSS values through monitoring the RSS values periodically for a specific Mobile Station (MS) or a Base Station (BS) from a server.
