Raspberry pi WiFi monitor?

Recommended Posts

Hi

Does anyone know of a project, to turn a Raspberry Pi  into a WiFi monitor e.g detect WiFi attacks, attempted connection to a WiFi AP?

Thanks in advance.

Just install the latest version of Kismet on it, that has full WIDS built in.

Thank you for the replies👍

Would it run ok on a Raspberry Pi zero?

I’ve ran it on a Pi 2 and didn’t impact much on the cpu.

It will run just fine on a pi zero.  Have done it before with no issues.  Just have to watch power requirements of USB adapters that may require a powered hub.

Can even get a pretty web UI for it:

That and the Pi Zero only has one USB data port, the other is power only.

True.  The pi zero always seems nice if you are looking for a compact build but depending on the demands of additional hardware may not be the case.  Especially if you end up need USB, external power, etc. that the pi 3 could have handled on its own.
