Although wireless mesh networks continue to develop, several works are being proposed to secure access to network during the handoff phase. Our contribution in solving this problem consists of proposing a reauthentication protocol that makes it possible to identify the legitimate clients and routers from the intruders. The suggested solution proves its effectiveness following the studies of simulation that are carried out according to different criteria handoff latency, loss and blocking rate, and in cases of mobility stations and routers.
