Kismet on Raspberry Pi running Raspbian


RaspberryPiOn an Raspberry Pi this process will probably take more then an hour.(Sit back and relax once you typed in make..) Before installing kismet from source we need some apps from the repository.

sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev libpcap-dev libpcre3-dev libnl-dev -y
Now we can download and compile the source
wget http://www.kismetwireless.net/code/kismet-2013-03-R1b.tar.gz tar -zxf kismet-2013-03-R1b.tar.gz cd kismet-2013-03-R1b ./configure make sudo make suidinstall sudo usermod -a -G kismet pi sudo reboot
Configuring monitor mode:
sudo iw phy phy0 interface add mon0 type monitor sudo iw dev wlan0 del sudo airodump-ng mon0
Open a new windows and configure Kismet: Edit /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf and add “ncsource=mon0”, “hidedata=true

And starting with:
