Wireless mesh network is a collection of wireless nodes communicating among themselves over multi-hop paths. WMNs are self-configuring, self-organizing confederation of wireless systems. The wireless mesh networks security is a big challenge for the authors. Sinkhole attack is one of the most severe security threats in WMNs that can disrupt majority of routing communications. In this paper, they have proposed SS-AODV, a sink secure routing algorithm that detects the presence of sinkhole during route discovery process and quarantines it.
