The open nature of the wireless medium leaves it too weak to intentional interference attacks, typically defined as jamming. This intentional interference with wireless transmissions can be used as a launch pad for mounting denial-of-service attacks on wireless networks. Typically, jamming has been introduced under an external threat model. However, intruders with internal knowledge of protocol specifications and network secrets can launch low-effort jamming attacks that are difficult to detect and counter. In this paper, the authors address the problem of selective jamming attacks in wireless networks.
