Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Decrypt encrypted eapol key data (in 802.11 4-way handshake)

I've started to implement support for decrypting the eapol keydata. With an early prototype I've been able to successfully decrypt and dissect the data. Though I run into a problem where I need to access parent fields' data. 

In the proto_wlan_rsna_eapol dissector when encrypted data is detected I'd like to call dot11decrypt functions. The decryption functions though need the wlan sa/ta addresses to find the appropriate key to use for decryption. Inside proto_wlan_rsna_eapol dissector the tvb only contain eapol parts of current frame. Is there any way I can get access to parent protocol data to be able to extrace wlan sa/ta?

In Lua I remember using a FieldExtractor to achieve this but is there something similar available for dissectors written in C?

I'm analyzing a couple of wireless sniffer logs and trying to dig into the key exchange messages passed during the 4-way handshake process. Specifically I need to decrypt the encrypted key data field of message 3/4.

Can this be done already with Wireshark? If not supported I'm thinking Wireshark might already internally decrypt this field to get the GTK and verify PTK. With slight modification I can perhaps get this printed to the console as first step.

Any advice on how to proceed would be great. If I get this working I'll make an attempt on adding support for dissecting this properly.
