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!
