DOT11_KEY_ALGO_TKIP_MIC 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_KEY_ALGO_TKIP_MIC structure defines a cipher key that is used by the TKIP algorithm for data encryption and decryption. The structure also defines a message integrity code (MIC) used by the Michael algorithm for verifying data integrity.

Syntax


typedef struct DOT11_KEY_ALGO_TKIP_MIC {
  UCHAR ucIV48Counter[6];
  ULONG ulTKIPKeyLength;
  ULONG ulMICKeyLength;
  UCHAR ucTKIPMICKeys[1];
} DOT11_KEY_ALGO_TKIP_MIC, *PDOT11_KEY_ALGO_TKIP_MIC;

Members

ucIV48Counter

The initial 48-bit value of the TKIP Sequence Counter (TSC), which is used for replay protection. For more information about the TSC, see TKIP.

ulTKIPKeyLength

The length, in bytes, of the TKIP key material in the ucTKIPMICKeys array. If the authentication and cipher key derivation is performed by the operating system, this member will always have a value of 16.

ulMICKeyLength

The length, in bytes, of the MIC key material in the ucTKIPMICKeys array. If the authentication and cipher key derivation is performed by the operating system, this member will always have a value of 16. The first 8 bytes will be the MIC key used for received packets and the last 8 bytes will be the MIC key used for transmitted packets.

ucTKIPMICKeys

The TKIP and MIC key material.

Remarks

The TKIP key starts at ucTKIPMICKeys [0]. The MIC key starts at ucTKIPMICKeys [ ulTKIPKeyLength ].

When the TKIP key is created, the 802.11 station must maintain separate TSC counters for the key for the send and receive path. The station must initialize the TSC counters in the following way:

  • Initialize the TSC counter used for the receive path to the value specified in the ucIV48Counter member.

  • Initialize the TSC counter used for the send path to any value.

Requirements

Version

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