Darren Kitchen Posted December 17, 2015 Share Posted December 17, 2015 Hey guys we're super excited to introduce our 6th gen wireless network auditing tool! We're calling it the WiFi Pineapple NANO. We engineered it from the ground up based on the successes and feedback from the Mark V with a focus performance and usability. What we ended up with is something total new. It's not a simple client radio, or just a router or access point. We believe the WiFi Pineapple NANO is the most powerful wireless network auditing tool you can put in your pants. It leverages our unique hardware design and intuitive new web interface to integrate with your pentest workflow. There's a huge emphasis on workflow and usability with the WiFi Pineapple NANO. We completely re-engineered the web interface built on modern standards. It's fast, intuitive, responsive and familiar. For example new table views give you a detailed look of the WiFi landscape and context menus provide instant access to core PineAP features and modules. But it's not just the web interface either - the entire system was rebuilt on a modern base and compartmentalized in way that'll allow us to take the platform to the level. Of course modules (ya know, Infusions ) remain a core feature. Over the air downloads of community developed add-ons and web front-ends to popular tools remain. The new API is extremely simple for seasoned developers and newcomers alike. We also put together a really sweet Tactical kit. The case straps to your bag as an every-day-carry including a new Pineapple Juice battery pack. We even tailored the case with a nice Hak5 imprint liner and a cut out for the USB host port so you don't have to take it out of the case to plug in your phone. Oh yeah, it works with your phone now. The new WiFi Pineapple Android app simplifies USB Internet connection sharing. You just tap to tether and it instantly connects to the beautiful new mobile friendly web interface. No root required. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.hak5.pineappleconnector You can also plug the NANO into your laptop and it'll both power on and enumerate as a USB Ethernet adapter so less cables and mess. And if you're doing a long term deployment, you can just plug the NANO into any standard USB power plug. Getting out-of-band access is even easier seeing as it supports the new gen of QMI-based modems. Here'a an intro video Seb and I made: So it should be no surprise that we had been working very hard to bring the new device for our little WiFi Pineapple ecosystem. What really surprised us though was the Mark V availability ending so soon. We were caught off guard post-DEFCON when our parts supplier notified us that the RTL8187 would no longer be available. We had developed a Mark V successor prototype using an alternative chipset, one that would allow for a somewhat inline change, but we found it came with a number of new complications that made the change unfeasible. At that time we had also anticipated the launch of our new WiFi Pineapple device to be much sooner. That being said, with as meticulous as we have been throughout the development, it's added considerable time to the process. Thankfully though our attention to detail has paid off as what we've developed is nothing short of amazing. We're so proud of the new device! Design decisions were made based on feedback from users and directly by observing the way in which the Mark V is being used, and it's clear we have a real winner. Unfortunately we underestimated the time in which certification takes to complete. For the last month and a half we've been anticipating the ability to launch for mass availability "in just another week or two". We have CE. We have FCC. We even have units in hand, awesome firmware, and a team raring to go. The latest development is that we're undergoing SAR testing, and sadly between labs being backed up and the new dongle requirement - we're looking at needing to wait just a while longer. The good news is that we're ready to launch for development and evaluation - meaning software developers like you here on the forums will now have early access to the new device. I want to give the core community that has been so good to us first dibs. Link at the bottom of the post. We'll be updating the other sites soon in anticipation of the official launch. Lastly, thank you for your patience and continued support for the project. I know it's not easy when we run into snags like this, especially while we're working tirelessly and quietly to bring something epic to the WiFi Pineapple community. And yes, we're rethinking that quietly part now. I'll keep you all updated with all of the latest as we take this next big step together and I'll try my best to answer any questions you have.
