Spoofing makes the task of identification and tracking back of the perpetrator/initiator in cyber crimes very difficult, e.g. those relating to denial of service, session hijacking, and address masquerading attacks by changing its network identifiers in WLANs. In such a scenario, spoof detection methods have gain wide attention. One way to prevent from spoofing is to authenticate the frames. However, in 802.11 WLANs, authentication and encryption for management and control frames is not provided. Further, present MAC spoofing detection techniques bring out large number of false positives.
