In this thesis, we present the integration of IEEE 802.11 wireless network discovery, exploitation, and attack capabilities into the Joint Threat Warning System (JTWS) Component Architecture and Framework (JCAF). JCAF is the foundation for the Special Operations Command's (SOCOM) platform-independent intelligence gathering and information processing functions. Although the capability to discover, exploit, and attack 802.11 networks already exists elsewhere, there is no common interface for all these functions. This thesis analyzes the feasibility of integrating these capabilities into the JCAF framework by examining the requirements that must be met for incorporation into JCAF. Additionally, this thesis considers design tradeoffs and justifies the decisions that were made. Finally, JCAF is analyzed in terms of its suitability as an architecture for developing platform-independent, distributed systems.
