IEEE 802.11 networks are particularly vulnerable to DoS (Denial of Service) attacks targeting the network availability. In this paper, the authors focus on the PS-Poll based DoS attack, where the attacker spoofs the polling frame on behalf of the client in order to discard the client's buffered packets at the access point level. To cope with this attack, they propose a security solution called APSP (Authenticated Power Save Poll) and based on the integer prime factorization to authenticate PS-Poll frames.
