Detection of Rogue Access Point in WLAN using Hopfield Neural Network

Menal Dahiya, Sumeet Gill


The serious issue in the field of wireless communication is the security and how an organization implements the steps against security breach. The major attack on any organization is Man in the Middle attack which is difficult to manage. This attack leads to number of unauthorized access points, called rogue access points which are not detected easily. In this paper, we proposed a Hopfield Neural Network approach for an automatic detection of these rogue access points in wireless networking. Here, we store the passwords of the authentic devices in the weight matrix format and match the patterns at the time of login. Simulation experiment shows that this method is more secure than the traditional one in WLAN.
