Abstract

The great recent advancements in wireless networking have drawn attention to the privacy and security problems that accompanied them. Wireless Honeypots have been introduced as tools whose value lies in the unauthorized attempts to use them. They have been successfully deployed in areas where they were able to trap hackers into virtual networks, and collect useful information about their attempted attacks. In this paper, we discuss attacks against wireless networks and classify the different existing Wireless Honeypots methods that have been proposed for defense against these attacks. We assess each wireless honeypots method by comparing their strengths and weaknesses in terms of the methods of deception used with them, authentication protocols implemented, logging facilities, and several other attributes.
