Abstract

The security protocols for WLAN such as WEP have fundamental weakness which can be exploited by the attacker to obtain unauthorized access to the wireless networks and generate attacks. In this paper, we propose a security architecture for counteracting denial of service attacks in wireless based network architecture with mobile nodes. We describe the system model and discuss the different cases of attack scenarios involving the mobility of the attacking and victim nodes. We describe how mobile IP protocol in conjunction with our model can be used to deal efficiently with the attacks on mobile nodes.
