The access point (AP) is an integral part of the infrastructure mode in wireless network.While the attacks caused by rogue AP (RAP) divulge a lot of users' privates in a large extent,such as the user's location information,surfing behavior on the Internet and social relations.A RAP detection algorithm based on AP fingerprint was proposed.The validity of AP was judged by the unforgeability and stability of the parameters of beacon frames.And the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed method were further verified by scheme comparisons and experimental analysis.

Key words: WLAN, privacy disclosure, RAP detection, fingerprint-based detection, Beacon frame
