In RAP, novel techniques are introduced to detect rouge APs and to improve network resilience. Here an efficient rogue AP protection system termed as RAP for commodity Wi-Fi networks is proposed. This system has the following nice properties: it requires neither specialized hardware nor modification to existing standards; the proposed mechanism can be integrated with an AP in a plugin manner; it provides a cost effective security enhancement to Wi-Fi networks by incorporating free but mature software tools; it can protect the network from adversaries capable of using customized equipment and violating the IEEE 802.11 standard.
