Wireless Mesh Networks are considered as a promising solution for offering low-cost access to broadband services. However, one of the main challenges in the design of these networks is their vulnerability to security attacks. In this paper, we analyze the fundamental security challenges and constraints of these networks, classify several possible attacks, and survey several intrusion prevention, detection, and response mechanisms found in the literature.
