Inhibition of Denial of Service Attack in WLAN Using the Integrated Central Manager

Denial of Service (DoS) attack is a major problem prevalent in Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN). Many security techniques were introduced to prevent the DoS attacks in WLAN. However, there are still many weaknesses which provide interest and way for hackers to do such attacks. This paper mainly deals with the two types of DoS attacks, namely EAPOL (Extensible Authentication Protocol Over LAN) start and EAPOL logoff frame over Access Point (AP) and wireless client. The experimental test bed is taken and the solutions are simulated using NS-2, a Linux based simulator, to analyze how far it prevents the DoS attacks in WLAN.
