Finding security configurations on the client

In previous chapters, we have seen how to create honeypots for open access points, WEP protected and WPA, but when we are in the field and see Probe Requests from the client, how do we know which network the probed SSID belong to.

Though this seems tricky at first, the solution to this problem is simple. We need to create access points advertising the same SSID but different security configurations simulataneously. When a roaming client searches for a network, it will automatically connect to one of these access points based on the network configuration stored on it.
