How do you wireshark wireless body area networks?

asked 2019-11-01 04:03:35 +0000

What procedure do I follow to capture Wireless Body Area Networks (WBAN) using Wireshark? I assume the internet protocol is the wrong protocol, but nothing prevents data from being redistributed on IP.

What procedure do I follow to capture Wireless Body Area Networks (WBAN) using Wireshark?

If you're talking about an IEEE 802.15.6 BAN, then the first few steps of the procedure are:

  1. get a linktype value assigned to 802.15.6 for use in pcap and pcapng files;
  2. find a device capable of capturing 802.15.6 traffic;
  3. write software that either
    1. supports that device in libpcap
    2. writes pcap or pcapng files as an extcap module
    3. writes pcap or pcapng files as a stand-alone program;
  4. write a dissector for IEEE 802.15.6 and submit it for inclusion in Wireshark.

I.e., there's no procedure you can use with the existing Wireshark; Wireshark, and possibly other software, will need to be extended to handle it.
