Abstract: This paper considers the problem of detecting rogue base station in WiMAX/802.16 networks. A rogue base station is an attacker station that duplicates a legitimate base station. The rogue base station puzzles a set of subscribers who try to get service which they believe to be a legitimate base station. It may lead to disturbance in service. The strategy of attack depends on the type of network. Our approach is based on the inconsistencies in sensitivity and received signal strength (RSS) reports received by mobile stations can be seen if a rogue Base Station (BS) is present in a network. These reports can be assessed by the legitimate base stations, for instance, when a mobile station undertakes a handover towards another BS. A new algorithm for detecting a rogue base station is described in this paper.
