Title: MECHANISM FOR AUTHENTICATING WAKE-UP RADIO PACKETS
Abstract:
Aspects of authenticating wake-up packets for a low-power wake-up radio (LP-WUR) are described. In some aspects, a station (STA) in a low-power state, such as a WUR mode, can receive a wake-up packet from an access point (AP). In some aspects, the STA can decode from the wake-up packet, a WUR authentication field including an authentication value and calculate a WUR authentication output value based on a WUR authentication input and a WUR authentication function, wherein the apparatus obtains the WUR authentication input and the WUR authentication function during a WUR negotiation with the AP. In some aspects, the STA can compare the WUR authentication output value to the authentication value, and authenticate the received wake-up packet based on the WUR authentication output value matching the authentication value.
