Summary: In encrypted wireless environments, the ability to identify types of packets is useful for applications ranging from intelligent jamming to probable plain text cryptanalysis. This thesis proves that encrypted packet types can be effectively identified. By utilizing size, timing and sequence it is shown that over 95% of traffic can be correctly categorized in lightly encrypted environments that hide data but do not significantly distort packet sizes
