WiMAX (Worldwide interoperability for Microwave Access) IEEE802.16 is a technology which provide the facility of wireless broadband access with the high speed data rates across whole cities or countries. WiMAX is the emerging technology of this generation. WiMax uses radio channel, which are open channel that's why security problem arises. In WiMAX air is used as a medium which connect physical layer to MAC layer. Here is large probability of data getting destroyed by unauthorized users. In this paper, the authors will have a detailed discussion on different security issues in WiMAX.
