Informacje dodatkowe: 

Szymon Szott received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in telecommunications (both with honours) from the AGH University of Science and Technology, Krakow, Poland in 2006 and 2011, respectively. Currently he is working as an assistant professor at the Department of Telecommunications, AGH University. In 2013, he was a visiting researcher at the University of Palermo (Italy) and at Stanford University (USA). His professional interests are related to wireless local area networks (medium access, QoS provisioning, security). He is a reviewer for international journals and conferences. He has been involved in several European projects (DAIDALOS II, CONTENT, CARMEN, MEDUSA, FLAVIA, PROACTIVE, RESCUE) as well as grants supported by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education and the National Science Centre. He is active in the ETSI NTECH Working Group on Evolution of Management towards Autonomic Future Internet (AFI) as well as the Association of Top 500 Innovators where he is a member of the management board. He is the author or co-author of over 40 research papers and four book chapters.

Summary: 
The IEEE 802.11s amendment for wireless mesh networks does not provide incentives for stations to cooperate and is particularly vulnerable to selfish insider attacks in which a legitimate network participant hopes to increase its QoS at the expense of others. In this tutorial we describe various attacks that can be executed against 802.11s networks and also analyze existing attacks and identify new ones. We also discuss possible countermeasures and detection methods and attempt to quantify the threat of the attacks to determine which of the 802.11s vulnerabilities need to be secured with the highest priority.
