Gaining Insight on Friendly Jamming in a Real-World IEEE 802.11 Network
Frequency jamming is the fiercest attack tool to disrupt wireless communication and its malicious aspects have received much attention in the literature. Yet, several recent papers propose to turn the table and employ so called friendly jamming for the benefit of a wireless network. For example, recently proposed friendly jamming applications include hiding communication channels, injection attack defense, and access control. This paper investigates the practical viability of friendly jamming by applying it in a real-world network.
