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.

Changelog

* Wed Sep 28 2011 meissner@suse.de
  - Kismet-2011-03-R2 released, includes:
  - 2011-03-R2
    New release to address a crash bug in Kismet when operating as a drone
    (either kismet_server or kismet_drone).
  - 2011-03-R1
    fixes problems with changes in ncurses 5.8 (for the few
    distributions which picked it up already) and is REQUIRED for Kismet
    to work with ncurses-5.8.  Also introduced is marginally more accurate
    GPS averaging (still all the problems of weighting and averaging,
    but eliminates the float drift), some compile time updates, other
    minor tweaks.
    Under the covers 2011-03 also contains the start of the new phy-neutral
    common tracker layer, which will be replacing the current model of an
    802.11-centric tracking layer.  Anyone working on capture plugins for
    non-dot11 protocols should start taking a look at the new tracking
    layer.  The dot11 tracking is being ported to the new layer and
    eventually they old tracking code will be disabled.
  - 2011-01-R1
    Lots of bugfixes (netxml reference, 802.11d, mac80211 on legacy cards,
    client preferences, client display options)
    Ruby network API and example clients
    Wifi NIC performance shoot-out tool
    WPA Migration Mode detection
    GPS logging in PPI pcap files
    Per-capture source per-network and per-client signal tracking
