Overview

IEEE 802.11 management frame header

This class make a PacketGen::Header::Dot11 header with #type set to 0 (management frame).

A IEEE 802.11 management header consists of:

Management frames should be constructed with more headers from SubMngt subclasses.

By example, build a DeAuth frame:

PacketGen.gen('Dot11::Management').add('Dot11::DeAuth')

Some frames need to have Element. By example a Beacon frame:

pkt = PacketGen.gen('Dot11::Management', mac1: broadcast, mac2: bssid, mac3: bssid).
                add('Dot11::Beacon')
pkt.dot11_beacon.add_elements(type: 'SSID', value: ssid)
pkt.dot11_beacon.add_elements(type: 'Rates', value: "\x82\x84\x8b\x96\x12\x24\x48\x6c")
pkt.dot11_beacon.add_elements(type: 'DSset', value: "\x06")
pkt.dot11_beacon.add_elements(type: 'TIM', value: "\x00\x01\x00\x00")
