The DOT11_PRIVACY_EXEMPTION structure defines a decryption exemption for a specified network EtherType.

Syntax


typedef struct DOT11_PRIVACY_EXEMPTION {
  USHORT usEtherType;

  USHORT usExemptionPacketType;
} DOT11_PRIVACY_EXEMPTION, *PDOT11_PRIVACY_EXEMPTION;

Members

usEtherType

The value of the IEEE EtherType in big-endian byte order.

usExemptionActionType

The type of exemption for the specified EtherType. The following exemption types are defined:

DOT11_EXEMPT_ALWAYS

The 802.11 station must discard the received packet if the Protected Frame subfield of the Frame Control field in the 802.11 MAC header is set to one.

DOT11_EXEMPT_ON_KEY_MAPPING_KEY_UNAVAILABLE

The 802.11 station must discard the received packet if a key-mapping key for the source MAC address is available and the Protected Frame subfield of the Frame Control field in the 802.11 MAC header is set to zero.

usExemptionPacketType

The type of packet that the exemption for the specified EtherType applies to. The following packet types are defined:

DOT11_EXEMPT_UNICAST

Exempt only unicast packets.

DOT11_EXEMPT_MULTICAST
