Many enterprises deploy 802.11 wireless networks for mission-critical operations; these networks must be protected for dependable access. This article introduces the MAP project, which includes a scalable 802.11 measurement system that can provide continuous monitoring of wireless traffic to quickly identify threats and attacks. We discuss the MAP system architecture, design decisions, and evaluation results from a real testbed.
