Wireless networks now enjoy widespread commercial implementation because of their ease of use, low cost and setup. However, since accessing wireless media is much easier than tapping a wired network, then security becomes a serious concern when implementing any wireless network. The authors consider a particular class of Denial of Service (DoS) attacks called jamming attacks. In the simplest form of jamming, the attacker interferes with the reception of messages by transmitting a continuous jamming signal, or several short jamming pulses. Jamming results in the loss of link reliability, increased energy consumption, extended packet delays and disruption of end-to-end routes.
