  1. wifite
    Link Project: https://github.com/derv82/wifite
    Wifite is for Linux only.Wifite is an automated wireless attack tool.Wifite was designed for use with pentesting distributions of Linux, such as Kali LinuxPentooBackBox; any Linux distributions with wireless drivers patched for injection. The script appears to also operate with Ubuntu 11/10, Debian 6, and Fedora 16.Wifite must be run as root. This is required by the suite of programs it uses. Running downloaded scripts as root is a bad idea. I recommend using the Kali Linux bootable Live CD, a bootable USB stick (for persistent), or a virtual machine. Note that Virtual Machines cannot directly access hardware so a wireless USB dongle would be required.Wifite assumes that you have a wireless card and the appropriate drivers that are patched for injection and promiscuous/monitor mode.
  2. wifiphisher
    Link Project: https://github.com/sophron/wifiphisher
    Wifiphisher is a security tool that performs Wi-Fi automatic association attacks to force wireless clients to unknowingly connect to an attacker-controlled Access Point. It is a rogue Access Point framework that can be used to mount automated victim-customized phishing attacks against WiFi clients in order to obtain credentials or infect the victims with malwares. It can work a social engineering attack tool that unlike other methods it does not include any brute forcing. It is an easy way for obtaining credentials from captive portals and third party login pages (e.g. in social networks) or WPA/WPA2 pre-shared keys.Wifiphisher works on Kali Linux and is licensed under the GPL license.

    Link Project: https://github.com/P0cL4bs/WiFi-Pumpkin
    Very friendly graphic user interface, good handling, my favorite one is the establishment of phishing wifi attack tools, rich functional interface, ease of use is excellent. Compatibility is also very good. Researcher  is actively update them, we can continue to focus on this fun project
  4. fruitywifi
    Link Project: https://github.com/xtr4nge/FruityWifi
    FruityWifi is an open source tool to audit wireless networks. It allows the user to deploy advanced attacks by directly using the web interface or by sending messages to it.
    Initially the application was created to be used with the Raspberry-Pi, but it can be installed on any Debian based system
  5. mama toolkit
    Link Project: https://github.com/sensepost/mana
    A toolkit for rogue access point (evilAP) attacks first presented at Defcon 22.
    More specifically, it contains the improvements to KARMA attacks we implemented into hostapd, as well as some useful configs for conducting MitM once you’ve managed to get a victim to connect.
  6. 3vilTwinAttacker
    Link Project:https://github.com/wi-fi-analyzer/3vilTwinAttacker
    Much like wifi-pumpkin interface. Has a good graphical interface, the overall experience is very good, good ease of use. Good compatibility. Researcher has hardly been updated.
  7. ghost-phisher
    Link Project: http://tools.kali.org/information-gathering/ghost-phisher
    It has a good graphical interface, but almost no fault tolerance, many options easily confusing, but the overall feeling is still very good use. It can be a key to establish rogue ap, and protect dhcp, dns services interface, easy to launch a variety of middle attack, ease of use is good. Compatible good. Kali has been made official team updated original repo.
  8. fluxion
    Link Project: https://github.com/wi-fi-analyzer/fluxion
    Fluxion is a remake of linset by vk496 with (hopefully) less bugs and more functionality. It’s compatible with the latest release of Kali (rolling). The attack is mostly manual, but experimental versions will automatically handle most functionality from the stable releases.

Wireless data transmission has just got faster after a team of German researchers achieved a record 40 Gbps transmission rate. This is the biggest wireless transmission rate ever demonstrated and it matches the data transmission speed for fiber optic.

The project was conducted by a joint team of German scientists from applied physics and technology institutes. The researchers achieved the 40 Gbps wireless data transmission record rate at a frequency of 240 GHz over a one-kilometer distance.

The 240 GHz transceiver chip, measuring only 1.5 x 4 mm.

This speed means that data off a complete DVD can be transmitted in less than a second. For comparison, some of the fastest Wi-Fi connectivity solutions on the market at the moment have a top data transmission speed of 300 Mbps.

The team developed a 240 GHz transmitter and receiver chip that only measures 4×1.5mm and is based on semi-conductor technology which uses high carrier mobility transistors. This technology makes it possible to use frequencies up to 300 GHz with receivers and transmitters that are actually compact and integrated circuits.

German scientists say that in this high frequency range, the atmosphere shows low attenuation and this actually enables directional broadband radio links. This makes the entire wireless data transmission system easier to set up and the signal more resistant to bad weather conditions, they said.

The project may also mark another first in the field of data transmission: having radio links transmit glass fiber data rates. The glass fiber signal would be fed into a radio link without any transcoding and then be transmitted and redirected to glass fiber.

Scientists say the 40Gbps transmission rate may be only the beginning, as higher frequency data rates are likely to be achieved over the following years. In the near future, this radio link system can be used to provide broadband Internet connections to rural areas and other places that are difficult to access by traditional optical fiber networks.

Soon there will be no where left to hide in London Town. The city is quickly becoming one giant WiFi hotspot, just as mayor Boris Johnson promised. Its iconic red phone boxes, the Thames, the Underground and even a minicab company have all been hooked up with free wireless. Now a plan has been approved to turn every famous black cab into a rolling 802.11 beacon. Company Eyetease has received approval from Transport for London to equip the vehicles with WiFi antennas that will provide 15 minutes of free high-speed data in exchange for sitting through a 15-second commercial. As the cabs ride through the city, the on board router will dynamically switch between 3G and 4G networks to maintain a constant connection. And, in an effort to get cab drivers hooked for the early 2013 launch, the CabWiFi service will provide special driver accounts that provide unlimited and commercial free service. The only thing left to do is figure out what it says about the city that its residents can’t go 15 minutes in a cab without high speed internet access. Maybe you can Google it at the next red light.

Better WiFi security could soon be just a few rolls of wallpaper away. French researchers at Institut Polytechnique de Grenoble, in cooperation with the Centre Technique du Papier, have developed wallpaper that can block WiFi signals, preventing them from being broadcast beyond the confines of an office or apartment.  But unlike other signal-blocking technologies based on the Faraday cage (which block all electromagnetic radiation), the wallpaper only blocks a select set of frequencies used by wireless LANs, and allows cellular phones and other radio waves through. L’Informatcien reports that researchers claim the price of the wallpaper, which is being licensed to a Finnish manufacturer for production, would be “equivalent to a traditional mid-range wallpaper.” It should be available for sale in 2013.

Pierre Lemaitre-Auger, the director of studies at Grenoble INP’s ESISAR (School of Advanced Systems and Networks) said during a demonstration of the wallpaper that in addition to preventing WiFi snooping, it could also be used in areas where there is concern about interference from WiFi or to block external WiFi sources—such as in hospitals, hotels, or theaters. (It could also be used to prevent guests from trying to get out of paying for WiFi and picking up an outside network for free.) He also said that the paper could be marketed to people concerned about sensitivity to electromagnetic waves, such as “people who want the opportunity to protect themselves and to have very low levels of radio waves in their apartment.”
