DOT11_PORT_STATE structure

Important  The Native 802.11 Wireless LAN interface is deprecated in Windows 10 and later. Please use the WLAN Device Driver Interface (WDI) instead. For more information about WDI, see WLAN Universal Windows driver model.
 

The DOT11_PORT_STATE structure defines the port state for a security session with a peer within a basic service set (BSS) network. The peer could either be an access point (AP) within an infrastructure BSS network, or a peer station within an independent BSS (IBSS) network.

Syntax


typedef struct _DOT11_PORT_STATE {
  DOT11_MAC_ADDRESS PeerMacAddress;
  ULONG             uSessionId;
  BOOL              bPortControlled;
  BOOL              bPortAuthorized;
} DOT11_PORT_STATE, *PDOT11_PORT_STATE;

Members

PeerMacAddress

The media access control (MAC) address of the AP or peer station with which the security session has been initiated.

uSessionId

The security session identifier (ID) assigned by the operating system.

bPortControlled

A Boolean value that defines whether the port is controlled for access to the BSS network. A value of TRUE specifies that the port has controlled access to the network.

For more information about controlled and uncontrolled port access, refer to Clause 6.3 of the IEEE 802.1X-1999 standard.

bPortAuthorized

A Boolean value that defines whether the port is authorized to access the BSS network. A value of TRUE specifies that the port has been authorized for network access.

For more information about authorized port access, refer to Clause 6.3 of the IEEE 802.1X-1999 standard.

Remarks

The operating system passes in the current port state of the security session through the pPortState parameter of the Dot11ExtIhvPerformPostAssociate IHV handler function. When this function is called, the IHV Extensions DLL must not change the data referenced by the pPortState parameter.

Requirements

Version

Available in Windows Vista and later versions of the Windows operating systems.
