SSID views

SSID tracker

The SSID tracker is a phy80211 specific mechanism for mapping SSID broadcast, probe, and response.

A unique identifier is generated from the SSID content, length, and encryption options.

Each SSID is mapped to a list of device keys organized by probe, response, and advertisement.

SSID-based summarization and display

Mirroring the base summarization & display endpoint API, the SSID summarization endpoint is the primary interface for clients to access the SSID list and for scripts to retrieve lists of SSIDs.

The SSID summarization is best utilized when applying a view window via the start and length variables.
