Jamming Attacks in Wireless Networks


S.Praveen Kumar, S.Swapna


Vol. 13  No. 10  pp. 110-113


The commodity of the medium in wireless networks makes it easy for an adversary to launch a Wireless Denial of Service (WDoS) attack. A jammer can continually transmit a radio signal in order to block any access to the medium by legitimate wireless nodes. Jamming techniques can vary, from simple ones based on the continual transmission of interference signals, to more sophisticated that rely on exploiting the protocol used for communication among wireless devices. We illustrate various techniques that where introduced in order to detect the presence of an adversary node as well as the mechanisms proposed for protecting the network from such attacks.
