Data produced by cellular devices and its usage are growing exponentially due to the popularity of smart phones and tablets. Because of their smaller sizes and reduced capabilities, it is sometimes hard to impose adequate security measures to these everyday used devices. For this reason, they become a popular target for data theft and misuse. Due to the nature of cellular network various kinds of attack on the cellular devices such as distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) are happening frequently. Conventional security measures for the layered architecture cannot cope with this ever-evolving security issue. Thus, we have proposed an enhancement of cross-layer design for security in wireless network entitled as Cellular Cross-layer Intrusion Detection and Response (CXIDR) by using honey pot approach. We have utilized the cross-layer design which integrates features from various layers for detecting intrusions in wireless environment and our proposed system enhances performance up to 20%.
