Kismet-2010-01-R1 available

Kismet is an 802.11 layer2 wireless network detector, sniffer, and intrusion detection system. Kismet will work with any wireless card which supports raw monitoring (rfmon) mode, and can sniff 802.11b, 802.11a, and 802.11g traffic.

Kismet identifies networks by passively collecting packets and detecting standard named networks, detecting (and given time, decloaking) hidden networks, and infering the presence of nonbeaconing networks via data traffic.

New stuff:

  • Bluetooth device discovery (active scanning only, not proper sniffing, but works with standard BT hardware doing scans)
  • Support for GPSD going JSON-only (ugh, JSON)
  • Assorted improvements to the UI and better plugin/UI integration

Bug fixes:

  • Assorted segfaults and hangs due to plugins (PTW and thread-based plugins in general stealing signals)
  • GPS logic
  • Duplicated callbacks on reconnect
