Wardriving with Kismet and GPSdrive

Wireless networks are everywhere these days, and it is surprisingly easy to find them whether or not they're intended for public access like Starbucks and MacDonalds.

Kismet is an Open-Source wireless packet sniffer which will detect and identify wireless networks, both unsecured and WEP-enabled, and log the results to a MySQL database.

GPSdrive is an Open-Source GPS mapping program which records where you are, where you have been, and the locations of points of interest (such as your house, local pubs, speed cameras etc).

When these two are combined, you get a mobile wireless-network sniffer which logs details of individual networks (and individual machines on those networks) as well as pinpointing them on a map for future reference.

This talk will discuss the operation and interaction of Kismet and GPSdrive, and show the level of information which can be gained with such a system.
