Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) is a promising technology to meet the challenges of the present generation for providing flexible adaptive and reconfigurable architecture. WMN provides cost-effective business solutions. A WMN is dynamically a self-organized and self-configured system with the nodes in the network automatically establishing and maintaining mesh connectivity among themselves. However, WMN is attractive to both the service providers and users and widespread due to its low investment feature and the wireless broadband services it supports, security issues inherent in mesh network or any wireless networks need be considered before deployment and proliferation of these networks, since it is unappealing to subscribers to obtain services without a security and privacy guarantee.
