The wireless mesh networks is one of the key technologies for field device networks to maximize the effect of smart grid. However, the wireless mesh networks is exposed to DoS attack based on routing misbehavior that cause the network does not work properly. If sensed data cannot be transferred from field network to server side system, we could not get the benefits of smart grid successfully. For protecting the field networks in smart grids from DoS attack based on routing misbehavior, we propose a revised monitoring method that improve the level of security of the wireless mesh networks for smart grid’s field device. We also provide the result of experiments.
