Abstract

In recent years wireless mesh networking has emerged as a promising technology to tackle the challenges of the next era of broadband services. It has offered the economical services in the field of medicine, defense, natural disasters and availability of Internet access in the remote areas etc. In this review paper, the fundamental security challenges and privacy concerns are analyzed. This paper also provides a brief detail about existing security architectures and technologies based on wireless mesh network.
