This paper is organized into the following chapters. Chapter
3 provides a brief overview of the relevant portions
of the IEEE 802.11 MAC rules. Chapter 4 covers the
algorithms used to analyze the duration field. Chapter
5 analyzes the accuracy of this analysis. Chapter
6 contains future work and concluding remarks. Finally
three appendices are also included: Appendix A lists
the results for all matching metrics covered in Chapter
5. Appendix B covers implementation
details that can be used to validate the techniques and results.
Appendix C gives a brief overview on running the associated tools.
Appendix D contains detailed information regarding every
802.11 implementation tested.
