Abstract

Although multi-channel wireless protocols are becoming predominant, security mechanisms of channel assignment are far from sufficient to protect the channel usage. In this paper, we discuss radio jamming attacks, ripple effect attacks and false information injection attacks in multi-interface and multi-channel wireless networks. We propose a security mechanism to secure channel management in multi-channel wireless networks. Our channel assignment protocol is resilient to the aforementioned intrusions. The evaluation results show that our protocol is effective and efficient.
