This tool is released as a proof-of-concept to demonstrate a weakness in the LEAP protocol. LEAP is the Lightweight Extensible Authentication Protocol, intellectual property of Cisco Systems, Inc. LEAP is a security mechanism available only on Cisco access points to perform authentication of end-users and access points. LEAP is written as a standard EAP-type, but is not compliant with the 802.1X specification since the access point modifies packets in transit, instead of simply passing them to a authentication server (e.g. RADIUS). BSD-AirTools by Dachb0den Labs bsd-airtools is a package that provides a complete toolset for wireless b auditing. Namely, it currently contains a bsd-based wep cracking application, called dweputils (as well as kernel patches for NetBSD, OpenBSD, and FreeBSD). It also contains a curses based ap detection application similar to netstumbler (dstumbler) that can be used to detect wireless access points and connected nodes, view signal to noise graphs, and interactively scroll through scanned ap's and view statistics for each. It also includes a couple other tools to provide a complete toolset for making use of all 14 of the prism2 debug modes as well as do basic analysis of the hardware-based link-layer protocols provided by prism2's monitor debug mode. chopchop by KoreK WEP cracker which uses the AP to decipher packets. Easiest one are ARP's. Takes 10-20s. Included within patches for wlan-ng to inject packets in monitor mode (I'll try to do hostap for the next release). That's about it. Bits and pieces are missing here and there (only decodes IP/ARP traffic), but it's pretty complete. ClassicStumbler by alksoft ClassicStumbler scans for and displays information about all the wireless access points in range. It will display your signal strength, noise strength, signal to noise ratio, what channel your access point is on, if other access points are interfering with yours, and whether or not those access points are providing encrypted, unencrypted, computer-to-computer, or infrastructure type networks. For an AirPort capable Mac.

Live data can be read from Ethernet, FDDI, PPP, Token-Ring, IEEE , Classical IP over ATM, and loopback interfaces (at least on some platforms; not all of those types are supported on all platforms).
14EtherPEG by Sam Bushell, Peter Bierman, Stuart Cheshire EtherPEG is a free program for the Macintosh that shows you all the JPEGs (and GIFs) going by on your network. EtherPEG works by capturing unencrypted TCP packets off your local network, collecting packets into groups based on TCP connection (determined from source IP address, destination IP address, source TCP port and destination TCP port), reassembling those packets into order based on TCP sequence number, and then scanning the resulting data for byte sequences that suggest the presence of JPEG or GIF data. EtherPEG works with any TCP/IP network, including Ethernet networks and wireless networks like AirPort, as long as the data is not encrypted. If the data is encrypted using IPSEC, or Virtual Private Network (VPN) products like PGPNet, or Web Browser SSL encryption, then third-parties cannot view your data. FakeAP by Black Alchemy Enterprises If one access point is good, 53,000 must be better. Black Alchemy's Fake AP generates thousands of counterfeit b access points. Hide in plain sight amongst Fake AP's cacophony of beacon frames.

The package comes with a sample client that plots the location of the currently visible GPS satellites (if available) and a speedometer. It can also use DGPS/ip. GpsDrive by Fritz Ganter Gpsdrive is a map-based navigation system. It displays your position on a zoomable map provided from a NMEA-capable GPS receiver. The maps are autoselected for the best resolution, depending of your position, and the displayed image can be zoomed. Maps can be downloaded from the Internet with one mouse click. The program provides information about speed, direction, bearing, arrival time, actual position, and target position. Speech output is also available.
15Hotspotter by Max Moser, Joshua Wright Hotspotter was written to exploit this weakness in the Windows XP operating system. Hotspotter passively monitors the network for probe request frames to identify the preferred networks of Windows XP clients, and will compare it to a supplied list of common hotspot network names. If the probed network name matches a common hotspot name, Hotspotter will act as an access point to allow the client to authenticate and associate. Once associated, Hotspotter can be configured to run a command, possibly a script to kick off a DHCP daemon and other scanning against the new victim. iStumbler by Alf Watt iStumbler is a free, open source tool for finding wireless networks and devices with your AirPort equipped Macintosh. iStumbler combines a compact user interface with a real time graph of signal strength and complete debugging information such as network type, name and mac address.

The toolkit also includes logic for firewall rule mapping, pingscanning, and portscanning via the injection channel and a cellular modem. WEP_Tools (wep_crack/wep_decrypt) by Tim Newsham This package contains two tools, one for cracking WEP keys and one for decrypting WEP packets. Wep_crack: Given a pcap file containing a packet capture of WEP packets, this program will attempt to find the key used in encryption. This is done by searching the key space using keys generated from dictionary words, or by exhaustively searching through the key generation seeds. Keys are validated by decrypting a number of packets and verifying their CRC. If the CRC validates for all packets, there is a high probability that the proper key was used. Wep_decrypt is a program for decrypting captured traffic that is protect with WEP traffic. It reads in a pcap capture file, such as that generated by prismdump, and outputs another pcap capture file with decrypted packets. By default it will read from stdin and ouput to stdout. The key to decrypt with can be specified as a string of hex characters, optionally seperated by spaces or colons, or as a text string. If a text string is specified, the actual keying material will be generated by the string in the (ad hoc) standard fashion used by many drivers. Wi-Find by Eric Olinger Wi-find is a wirelesss network detection tool that is written in C and is aiming for flexibility and clean easy to understand code.
