I. ABSTRACT
Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) are multi hop net-
works in which the mesh clients rely on static mesh
routers (or directly via other mesh clients) to relay data
from one point to another in a multihop fashion. WMN
gained significant attention because of the numerous
applications it supports, e.g., broadband home network-
ing, community and neighborhood networks, delivering
video, building automation, in entertainment and sport-
ing venues etc. But the main challenge of these multihop
networks is the susceptibility to various security threats.
In this paper, we address the problem of gray hole
attack in which a malicious node refuses to forward a
