Projects / WifiScanner


WifiScanner is an analyzer and detector of 802.11b stations and access points. It can listen alternatively on all the 14 channels, write packet information in real time, can search access points and associated client stations, and can generate a graphic of the architecture using GraphViz. All network traffic can be saved in the libpcap format for post analysis. It works under Linux with all WiFi cards.

    Release Notes: "Wep" was changed to "Cry" for a crypted packet, because with Wpa the packet is marked Wep but it's not wep. More compatibility with Debian was added. libpcap was modified. Bugs were fixed.

    •  12 Sep 2006 21:31

      Release Notes: This release detects WPA, WPA2, TKIP, PSK, CCMP, etc. in DATA and Beacon. It uses the libpcap integrated with Kismet. The pcap call has been simplified and is more generic. The RadioTAP header of IPW2200 is analyzed.

        Release Notes: History is always printed, and PROBEREQ packets are not taken in signal history. All warnings have been removed: the use of cast expressions as lvalues is deprecated, and so it compiles with GCC 4.0. There is a clean option in configure, and this release is more strict with the use of the included wiretap library (which is used by default).

        •  12 Oct 2005 08:26

          Release Notes: This release now works with all wifi cards. A lot of bugs were removed, and the code was made more secure. You can now hide some sort of packets in real time. Airjack26 allows you to attack another peer, but the code is very unstable.

          •  25 Feb 2005 17:42

            Release Notes: A lot of little corrections have been made, including ones for a possible BOF in the functions getPacket*. Syslog support has been added. Compilation with a mix of Glib 2 and 1 is now ok, and with linux-wlan-ng 0.2.1_pre23. The oldest bug has been fixed: Ad-Hoc client are identified correctly. For now, Curses is mandatory.
