Now a days, one of the most common wireless security threats is the Rogue Access Point (RAP). Which is used in many Wireless LAN (WLAN) attacks, Especially Denial of Service (DoS) and data theft attacks. Many other RAPs are deployed by employees wanting unfettered wireless access and these access points are known soft access points. Other rogues are located in neighboring companies using your network for free access, low-cost and consumer-grade, these access points often do not broadcast their presence over the wire and can only be detected over the air. Because they are typically installed in their default modes with proper authentication and encryption are not enabled for self results creating a security hazards to network. Because wireless LAN signals can traverse building walls, an open access point connected to the corporate network the perfect target for attacks like war driving. Any client that connects to a rogue access point must be considered as rogue client, because it bypasses the authorized security procedures of IT department. So in this paper we discussed some reasons to suspect RAPs followed by prevention technique and some recent detection methods of RAPs.
