Abstract

Wireless LAN has become an integral part of our lives. Almost every organization or institution use WLAN these days. Although WLAN is very convenient to use for different purposes, it has created many threats as an attacker will not have to connect to the wireless LAN through a physical device to directly launch an attack on the target device if he is present in the same wireless LAN. Thus, driver security is critical for Wi-Fi devices and to test the vulnerabilities of a Wi-Fi device, a Fuzzing testing framework has been proposed which will be used for an Android device’s Wi-Fi driver. We will basically simulate an attack against the Wi-Fi device to be tested when it will be searching for an access point or already connected to a WLAN and we can determine different cases in which our device is able to handle the malicious packets correctly.
