In the last 10 years, mobile devices have become an important part of daily life of everyone. We use them in a wide variety of applications from basic phone telephony through to a variety of m-commerce scenarios. Not only they provide mobile communication at anytime anywhere, they also enable us to browse the net, to use it like a credit card, etc. Since the information is transmitted through radio frequencies instead of cables, they require much more protection than the wired ones. This paper presents a different solution to this problem: behavioural profiling. We believe creating user profiles and then comparing them with the real-time ones will help us to detect malicious activity in wireless networks. The paper proposes a basic architecture to support profiling approach.
