If we are using tshark how would we decrypt WPA traffic. I think we would need to use the -o wlan.enable_decryption:TRUE flag to enable decryption but I don't see a preferences entry to enter the WPA password and ssid. In the wireshark client application it actually creates a file named 8021__keys specifically with these key values "wpa-pwd","MyPassword:MySSID".
