9 pagesDate: April 25, 2018


In modern era wireless mesh networking has evolved as high throughput technology to handle the services of broadband in coming era. WMN has provided the opportunity for the economical services in the field of defense, natural disaster and the internet availability in the developed areas. However, one of the key encounters in the scheme of these networks is their susceptibility to security attacks. In this paper, we examine the security goals of these networks, categorize some likely attacks on Media Access Control layer, and review numerous prevention methods about intrusion, detection protocols, reported in the scientific writings. The paper also pro-vides the basic information about the architecture of WMNs.
