Wireless mesh networks have emerged recently as a technology for next generation wireless networking. Due to multi-hop
communication and routing on layer two in mesh networks, attacks on the routing, selective forwarding and eavesdropping on confidential data
become relatively easy. To avoid such attacks, a differentiated security approach which is based on protection levels associated with nodes in the
network is introduced in this paper. Participation in the MAC layer routing is facilitated according to the respective protection level of a node.
Using additional cryptographic protection, the approach introduced in this paper would greatly help in avoiding unintentional disclosure of
confidential data.
