Wireless Fuzzers

As outlined in the previous section, wireless fuzzers aid in the discovery of various device driver-level flaws that have been announced at a few security conferences like DefCon in 2006.

Wireless fuzzers are essentially tools that generate a series of wireless frames and throw them at wireless devices at a configurable speed and quantity.
