Name: kismet Distribution: openSUSE 11.4
Version: 2010_01_R1 Vendor: openSUSE
Release: 4.1 Build date: Sat Feb 19 12:08:08 2011

Summary: An 802.11 Wireless Network Sniffer
Kismet is an 802.11 wireless network sniffer. This is different from a
normal network sniffer (such as Ethereal or tcpdump) because it
separates and identifies different wireless networks in the area.
Kismet works with any 802.11b wireless card that is capable of
reporting raw packets (rfmon support), which include any Prism2-based
cards (Linksys, D-Link, Rangelan, and more), Cisco Aironet cards, and
Orinoco-based cards. Kismet also supports the WSP100 802.11b remote
sensor by Network Chemistry and is able to monitor 802.11a networks
with cards that use the ar5k chipset.
