With the increasing availability of flexible wireless 802.11 devices, the potential exists for users to selfishly manipulate their channel access parameters and gain a performance advantage. Such practices can have a severe negative impact on compliant stations. To enable access points to counteract these selfish behaviours and preserve fairness in wireless networks, in this paper we propose a policing mechanism that drives misbehaving users into compliant operation without requiring any cooperation from clients. This approach is demonstrably effective against a broad class of misbehaviours, soundly-based, i.e., provably hard to circumvent and amenable to practical implementation on existing commodity hardware.
