Kismet 2013_03_R1b Description:
Kismet is an open source application that provides users with an 802.11 layer2 wireless network sniffer, detector, and intrusion detection solution for Linux, BSD, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. The application runs in any terminal emulator and features a client/server modular architecture that supports any wireless card that included raw monitoring (rfmon) mode. It is basically a command-line 802.11 b/g/n/a network traffic sniffer. It has been designed from the ground up to be able to identify networks simply by detecting standard named networks and passively collecting packets. It can also detect hidden Wi-Fi networks, and discovers existing non beaconing wireless networks through data traffic.
