Wireless Protocol has become a very important part of modern life. From cell phone to laptops everyone uses Wireless for one purpose or another. Wireless protocol is commonly known as IEEE 802.11 Cliendard. It uses several frames, header for its operation. Unfortunately, none of these are encrypted and hence can be sniffed and analyzed for exploiting. Due to this plaintext nature of 802.11 packets several protection mechanisms provided by 802.11 become useless such as hidden SSID MAC filtering, etc.
