Informacje dodatkowe: 

Szymon Szott uzyskał stopień doktora habilitowanego w dyscyplinie telekomunikacja na Akademii Górniczo-Hutniczej w Krakowie w 2018 roku. Obecnie pracuje tam jako profesor uczelni. W 2013 r. był wizytującym badaczem na Uniwersytecie w Palermo (Włochy) i na Uniwersytecie Stanforda (USA). Jego zainteresowania zawodowe związane są z bezprzewodowymi sieciami lokalnymi (dostęp do łącza radiowego, zapewnianie QoS, bezpieczeństwo). Jest autorem ponad 70 publikacji naukowych.

Additional information: 

Szymon Szott received his MSc and PhD degrees in telecommunications (both with honors) from the AGH University of Science and Technology, Krakow, Poland in 2006 and 2011, respectively. Currently he is working as an associate professor at the Department of Telecommunications of AGH University. In 2013, he was a visiting researcher at the University of Palermo (Italy) and at Stanford University (USA). His professional interests are related to wireless local area networks (channel access, quality of service, security, inter-technology coexistence). In the past, he has been a member of ETSI’s Network Technology Working Group Evolution of Management towards Autonomic Future Internet (AFI), a senior member of IEEE, an IEEE 802.11 Working Group member, and on the management board of the Association of Top 500 Innovators. He is a reviewer for international journals and conferences. He has been involved in several European projects (DAIDALOS II, CONTENT, CARMEN, MEDUSA, FLAVIA, PROACTIVE, RESCUE) as well as grants supported by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education and the National Science Centre. He is the author or co-author of over 70 research papers.

Summary: 
The IEEE 802.11s amendment for wireless mesh networks does not provide incentives for stations to cooperate and is particularly vulnerable to selfish insider attacks in which a legitimate network participant hopes to increase its QoS at the expense of others. In this tutorial we describe various attacks that can be executed against 802.11s networks and also analyze existing attacks and identify new ones. We also discuss possible countermeasures and detection methods and attempt to quantify the threat of the attacks to determine which of the 802.11s vulnerabilities need to be secured with the highest priority.
