dc.description.abstractNetwork security is an important domain in the field of computer engineering. Sensitive information flowing across computer networks is vulnerable to potential threats, therefore it is important to ensure their security. Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) are self-organized networks deployed in small proximity which have an wireless ad-hoc mesh topology. While they are cost effective and easy to deploy, they are extremely vulnerable to network intrusions due to no central switch or router. However, they can be secured using cryptographic techniques, firewalls or Demilitarized Zones (DMZs). Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs) are used as a secondary line-of-defence in computer networks from possible intrusions. This thesis proposes a framework for a Hybrid Intrusion Detection System (HIDS) for WMN.en_US
