Wireless communication networks are becoming susceptible to more sophisticated and untraceable attacks. Wireless technology has been gaining popularity over some years. Adaptation of standard depends on ease of use and level of security it provides. In this paper, the authors will study and compare Security techniques to detect attack in 802.11 by fusing multi-layer metrics is presented. They will discuss advantages and limitations of techniques of cross layer approach for wireless network security. Cross-layer approach has gained interest in performance optimization due to their design advantages.
