Selective Jamming Attacks Prevention Mechanism Through Packet-Hiding
Since RF (Radio Frequency) is essentially an open medium, deliberates radiation or reflection of electromagnetic energy for the purpose of disrupting enemy use of electronic devices or systems. it is vulnerable to intentional interference attacks, typically referred to as jamming. jamming can be a huge problem for wireless networks. Jamming is one of many exploits used compromise the wireless environment. It works by denying service to authorized users as legitimate traffic is jammed by the overwhelming frequencies of illegitimate traffic. A knowledgeable attacker with the right tools can easily jam the 2.4 GHz frequency in a way that drops the signal to a level where the wireless network can no longer function.
