Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) is susceptible to security provisioning in spite of the solutions such as the Wired Equivalent Protocol (WEP) or IEEE 802.1x. This paper proposes an integrated scheme for intrusion detection in WLAN systems. The proposed scheme operates with one or more Gathering Agents (GAs) and a Master Server (MS). Each GA is used to get security information by collecting the frame packets in WLAN, whereas the MS is purposed to detect and prevent the various attacks by analyzing the packets in the WLAN systems.
