Abstract
Granting an high level of Security in Wireless Networks is one of the most important required task provided by IEEE802.1x standards for modern wireless network environments such as Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANET). In this field, the use of directional antennas could help to reduce negative effects brought by the majority of the network security attacks such as eavesdropping and DOS (Denial of Service). Therefore, classic directional antennas are often not sufficient to mitigate these kinds of issues due that they are poor in terms of hardware architecture. One of the most significant issues in directional MAC (Medium Access Control) communications is represented by deafness problem; however, in this paper, we present a novel approach exploiting deafness issue and beamforming that has the goal to mitigate main security threats, through a node insulation mechanism that allows to improve the overall network security level in directional MANET.
