Kismet is a wireless network detector, sniffer, and intrusion detection system. Kismet works predominately with Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11) networks, but can be expanded via plug-ins to handle other network types.


A BIT ABOUT ITS ORIGINS

Many of us who work or play in the wireless world have come to know and love Kismet.  If you have ever competed in the Wireless Village WCTF I am willing to bet you used Kismet for some of the challenges.
Kismet is the creation of Dragorn, a long time member of the INFOSEC and hacker communities.  Dragorn created this out of both need and a passion.  Lucky for us, he chose to make it readily available to everyone.

WHY SUPPORT DRAGORN'S WORK


It takes time, effort and skill to maintain Kismet and enhance its features.  Dragorn has never charged for this tool and shares it freely with the community.  But! wouldn't it be great if you could show him your appreciation for his work and effort?  Well, you can!  Click the link below to become a patron of Dragorn and his Kismet creation.  It doesn't matter if you do a one time donation or a monthly.  If you use Kismet then show a little love and appreciation to the talented and generous Dragorn!

As usual, we always ask one or more of our competitors to provide a write up from the players seat. Here is one competitors view from that chair.

--------------------------
This year's BSides Charm had a lot more people in it and the WCTF was no exception. Quite a few participants we're new to the wireless village, but that didn't stop them from learning new things and getting to the top of the scoreboard. The WCTF included both WiFi and SDR challenges that provided an excellent platform to learn and practice for everyone including beginners. One of the most fun challenges during this competition was the wireless Fox hunt, where players have to track down a single wireless access point signal that a random person is carrying. Imagine having to pin point the location of a pocket size router that 1 person is carrying amongst the 900+ people that attended BSides Charm. Well this is just one the many fun challenges that the WCTF has to offer and with each new conference they bring new and more interesting challenges to keep everyone learning new things every time. My best advise is to go with a few friends, make a team and assign specific roles or areas of expertise to each person and when another conferences comes along you can switch roles. That way each member can have the opportunity to learn something new each time and become a more well-rounded  competitor. Also when I participate in the WCTF I always go in with the goal in mind to have fun no matter what. So if you attend another conference that has a WCTF then feel free to join in and take a crack at a few of the challenges and I bet you will have a lot of fun and learn new things along the way.

ShmooCon results (better late then never, right?)


Well, as always Shmoo was a blast this year.  ShmooCon is a great place for Wireless Village and Wireless CTF.  In a way its like homecoming.  Unlike DEFCON, Shmoo is still a manageable size and maintains that true hacker spirit.  I am talking about the spirit of small cons that let people learn, where you may get a chance to see a living legend up close and even chat with them, like a normal person.

This years Shmoo WCTF had some interesting moments.  We all enjoyed dog collar shock theater (be sure to check out Russ' interview with Hak5) and the wireless drinking game.  The big beef was the War Driving portion of our contest.  We saw this portion turn the tide for a couple of teams.

WCTF this year also saw some return champions:
