I just found this pretty interesting project called WifiTap. Basically it allow for communication over a wifi network through traffic injection so that you’re not actually associated to the AP through the driver interface. Apparently you can actually route IP traffic over it and everything like a “real” interface.
The reason this is cool for us, is that it’s a step closer to the 2.0 framework for wicrawl and being able to multi-plex Access points over one card. It’s proof that a software only stack for 802.11 works end to end without crazy firmware issues. A video of his presentation at recon is available online.
Another cool thing I found out while checking out the presentation, is that Scapy actually has packet classes for all the of the different 802.11 management frames, etc.
