Using wireless mesh networks to offer Internet connectivity is becoming a popular choice for wireless Internet service providers as it allows fast, easy, and inexpensive network deployment. However, security in WMNs is still in its infancy as very little attention has been devoted thus so far to this topic by the research community and so it has become more vulnerable to various types of attacks. In this paper we described various DoS attacks and their detection methods in wireless mesh networks. DoS attacks can compromise the availability of wireless mesh networks as such attacks would essentially prevent one or more nodes from accessing or providing specific services.
