    Abstract :

    Abstract- This paper commences the secure communication model for wireless mesh networks. There are bulk numbers of Mesh nodes in Wireless Mesh Networks which collect information and transfuse it to Base Station among common hops. In this presented paper the types of attack will be discussed and the solution to overcome these attacks will be examined. A denial of service (DoS) or distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack is the most vital attack and these attacks will be taken up. This malicious node in this attack hits on the accessibility of a node and all nodes in the whole of the network. Purpose of this attack is to block the services of the Mesh nodes. The attacker generally uses battery exhaustion method and radio signal jamming. Denial of Service attacks is transported by outside nodes which break the communication channel among communicating sensor nodes. In DDoS attack, the attack is performed by more than one machine. The proposed approach tracks the sequence number of packets. If packet sequence number is missing then generate the alarm. This alarm makes alert to every node present on the network.
