Review on RAP: Protecting Wi-Fi Networks from Rogue Access Points

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.
