The presence of Rogue Access Point (RAP) is major security concern in wireless network. If this kind of security threat is alive into WLAN, it results into leakage of confidential information to outside network. In the authors' implementation, they have make used of clock skew of wireless LAN access point as its fingerprint to detect the fake APs. Fingerprinting will act as unique identification like human fingerprint work. The major objective of using the clock skew interval for detecting the fake AP is to overcome the limitation of existing approach. Existing methods for detection of fake AP has limitation of detecting MAC address spoofing.
