Vista Wireless Power Tools

Josh Wright from Inguardians has written a paper on Vista's wireless stack. He describes the NDIS6 command line interfaces and how to use them in a pentest. From the paper:

"With the introduction of Windows Vista, Microsoft has put forth considerable effort in revamping the IEEE 802.11 wireless stack through the Network Driver Interface Specification (NDIS) 6 model. With considerably greater functionality and capability than was provided in Windows XP, Vista's wireless capabilities shine with new freedom for developers, a robust development framework, rich information sources for wireless analysis and end-user tools for analyzing and controlling wireless parameters."

I'm looking forward to doing some wifi research again and this paper certainly provides a healthy kick in the pants to do so.
