Method for Preventing Selective Jamming Attacks

Wireless medium provides high speed wireless connectivity so, it is more vulnerable to interference attacks, called as jamming attack. This jamming interference in wireless transmissions of data can generate a DoS attacks on wireless networks. With the protocol specification knowledge and network secrets knowledge, one can reduce the efforts of jamming, so that jamming is difficult to detect and counter. Here, the addressed problem is jamming of signals in wireless transmission. Advantages of selective jamming can result in the performance degradation of system and adversary. These results are depicted by two case studies; the foremost is selective attack on routing followed by TCP attack.
