|Title||IEEE 802.11i Security and Vulnerabilities Studying and Enhancing WIDS Performance|
Despite using a variety of comprehensive preventive security measures, the Robust Secure Networks (RSNs) remain vulnerable to a number of attacks. Failure of preventive measures to address all RSN vulnerabilities dictates the need for enhancing the performance of Wireless Intrusion Detection Systems (WIDSs) to detect all attacks on RSNs with less false positive and false negative rates. This research performs an analytical study for wireless intrusion detection techniques (WIDTs) for detecting attacks on IEEE 802.11i RSNs. The research also verifies the effectiveness of two WIDTs in detecting MAC spoofing Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. These WIDTs are Received Signal Strength Detection Technique (RSSDT) and Round Trip Time Detection Technique (RTTDT) which can run in passive mode, do not require protocol or hardware modifications, and they are computationally inexpensive. We do our verification by applying three new different DoS attacks: TKIP DoS attack, Channel Switch DoS attack, and Quite DoS attack; and study the performance of these WIDTs. Moreover, we study the correlation of the generated alarms from these WIDTs for greater reliability and robustness. Finally, we propose an algorithm to enhance the performance of the correlation of these WIDTs by optimizing the value of the detection threshold; the proposed algorithm lowers the false positive rate.
