IEEE 802.11 WLAN specifically named as infrastructure network bridges a wireless network to a wired network through Wireless Access Points (WAPs). Therefore it is necessary to configure the Access Point and all local wireless clients in order to use the same network. On the basis of Gartner research, now-a-days 20% of IEEE 802.11 WLAN worldwide is vulnerable due to deployment of rogue access points. This paper identifies and summarizes all threats due to deployment of rogue access points and their possible solutions to detect and prevent them in IEEE 802.11 wireless network.
