Geolocation spoofing - Fake APs + 1 Router?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am working on a project that spoofs the geolocation of devices by faking MAC addresses from another place through wifi signals (somewhat similar to this).

I have a Raspberry B+, connected to an Alfa AWUS036NH running in monitor mode, connected through ETHERNET with an MBP sharing Internet connection. I am currently able to use Aircrack + mdk3 to create multiple (encrypted) AP within a list of fake MAC addresses, using:

sudo mdk3 wlan0mon b -v LIST.txt -g -t

And this works perfectly. However I also want, at the same time, to use the same wireless adapter to create an AP (with a hand-assigned MAC address) that shares the internet connection the Raspberry shares via ethernet. Thus, both as a router, and as a "fake AP generator".

Is this possible? If not, any ideas of what would be the best workaround?

I am doing this for test purposes. The spoofing did not work well only faking unconnectable signals, but my theory is that by also creating an actual access point with a fake mac address, the setup will work better.

Thanks in advance.

I'm guessing your problem is that when the device is in monitor mode, it can't be in AP mode (if that's the name).

Quickest solution would be to simply add a second radio to your Pi and use that as the AP.

Hi Cooper,

Thank you for your answer! I managed to do as you have suggested, and it worked. One is running in monitor mode, and the other is running as a bridge between the ethernet and wlan.

I do however have now a new problem (see post: https://forums.hak5.org/index.php?/topic/36100-ap-w-spoofed-mac-address-doesnt-work/). My AP, with a spoofed MAC, isn't connectable.

But the issue from this post here was solved. Thanks!
