Wireless intrusion detection systems are important to the security of wireless local area networks (WLANs). Wireless networks are not only susceptible to TCP/IP-based attacks native to wired networks, they are also subject to a wide array of 802.11-specific threats. To aid in the defense and detection of these potential threats, WLANs should employ a security solution that includes an intrusion detection system(IDS). Intrusion detection systems attempt to identify computer system and network intrusions and misuse by gathering and analyzing data. IDS has traditionally been developed to detect intrusions and misuse for wired systems and networks. In this paper, we suggest lightweight wireless IDS module on AP with network monitoring, analysis and filtering module against malicious DDoS attacks. Suggested system provides good performance on wireless LAN environments.
