Kismet Wireless

For anyone messing with the http://bcmon.blogspot.com broadcom monitor mode hacks for android, grab the Kismet git repo and check out the branch Kismet-2013-03-bcmon.

It gives you a 'bcmon' type (kismet -c wlan0:type=bcmon) that includes the hacks necessary to work with the bcmon firmware; specifically it will treat the interface as radiotap regardless of the actual DLT reported (since it reports arphrd_ether) and won't try to put it in monitor mode (since this breaks the ability to set channel).

You'll still need to get their radio firmware and tweaks to kick it into monitor mode before starting Kismet.

I haven't gotten Kismet running under the ndk toolchain yet; this screenshot is from a chroot to a filesystem derived from ubuntu-arm-core.

Things are pretty hacky right now, but it's slowly coming along.

Kismet 2013-03-R1 released; at the usual place: https://www.kismetwireless.net/download.shtml

Lots of bugfixes including better terminal support in some situations, client fixes, interface channel handling fixes for multivap (fixes the channel set bug when the main interface is up), radiotap alignment fixes, and lots of other little quirks.
All stable releases are signed with GPG. For directions on how to get GPG and verify signatures, visit the GNUPG home page. Download the GPG public key here. Some browsers mangle the GPG key or won't ...

Another court agrees, having open wireless doesn't mean negligence on your part.  This is almost definitely a Good Thing for both the industry and personal users - providing a shared wireless connection is your business, to start with, and persecuting users who lack the knowledge to set up a secure system won't solve anything.

The argument that someone shouldn't need to be an expert just to plug in a home wi-fi system is a whole other can of worms though.  Defaults are SLOWLY getting better.

New Kismet release brewing - in Git under the branch Kismet-2013-03-R1.  Nothing revolutionary - this doesn't include the phy-neutral core, basically it's a stop-gap maintenance release because there are a number of broken issues pending which really needed to be addressed.

All the patches are pulled in from dev trees, release will probably be sometime in the next week unless major issues are found.

Let's see how this works out.  Hopefully since everyones identity is linked in G+ (grr) it will keep the usual spam that "internet forums" generate to a minimum (yay!).

I see no reason this should be limited to Kismet, so fire away.

I say that, but as soon as I posted, G+ flagged my own post as "may be spam, moderate and allow?"

That's sure a thing.

You can see me being awkward on camera (and showing off some new toys) on the latest +Hak5 episode...

About to head off to Toorcamp; I'll probably be around the Dorkbot PDX area if you don't run into me somewhere else.  I'll have some Kisbee kits (sorry, you'll have to solder these yourself, I couldn't get assembly going this week).

Come hang out & hack on some code or something.
