Kismet 2016-01-R1


After a very long while, a new Kismet release!

Kismet-2016-01-R1 is out! This release is more of a maintenance release than one introducing new features - those are still under development in the git tree under various branches.

New Website


A new Kismet website!

I've switched the Kismet website to a new design, based very strongly on the fluid960gs layout.

Smarter Wi-Fi Manager R77


Smarter Wi-Fi Manager R77

This update of SWM fixes crashes on Android 4.3 and earlier which lacked the multiuser API.

What is Kismet?

Kismet is a wireless network detector, sniffer, and intrusion detection system. Kismet works predominately with Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11) networks, but can be expanded via plug-ins to handle other network types.


  • 802.11 sniffing
  • Standard PCAP logging (compatible with Wireshark, TCPDump, etc)
  • Client/Server modular architecture
  • Plug-in architecture to expand core features
  • Multiple capture source support
  • Live export of packets to other tools via tun/tap virtual interfaces
  • Distributed remote sniffing via light-weight remote capture
  • XML output for integration with other tools


You can follow development info on the development blog.

You can also follow KismetWireless on Twitter for development updates and wireless-related stuff.
