PRODUCING WIRELESS MAPPING WITH KISMET

 

The following installation process assumes that you are utilising the Auditing Laptop Build as described in the Auditing Laptop Build: HOWTO and that you have installed Kismet as per STEPS ONE and TWO in the Kismet Installation guide.

 

 

Patching Kismet for Expedia Mapping

Producing Maps with Expedia

Patching Kismet for Google Mapping

Producing Maps with Google Mapping

 

Both the Expedia maps and Google mapping patches can be quite safely applied to the same build; both options are then available for use.  Not sure how much support (if any) there are for the Expedia maps in the US, please let us know!

 

 

Patching Kismet for Expedia Mapping:

 

cd /tools/wifi/kismet-2006-04-R1

 

 

wget http://wirelessdefence.org/Contents/Files/gpsmap.cc.2005-08-R1.expedia_europa.patch (NOTE: Case Sensitive)

 

 

patch -p0  <  gpsmap.cc.2005-08-R1.expedia_europa.patch

 

 

Producing Maps with Expedia (Simple Option):

 

To test if your kismet build is in the right state to produce maps, simply type gpsmap and ensure Usage: is returned, not various errors (which indicates a problem with your installation).

 

 

 

gpsmap -h provides a list of the many, many options for use with gpsmap.  Sadly many of the -S options are broken (1-5), hence the reason for patching to allow us to use the -S 6 option.

 

 

 

Some Sample Mapping Options:

 

gpsmap -S 6 -r -o map1.jpg -e /tmp/Kismet-Mar-2006-2.gps

 

 

 

gpsmap -S 6 -t -p -o map2.jpg -e /tmp/Kismet-Mar-16-2006-2.gps

 

 

 

Patching Kismet for Google Mapping:

 

Project Homepage: http://parknation.com/gmap

 

 

wget http://parknation.com/gmap/files/gpsmap-gmap-0.1.tgz

 

 

tar zxvf gpsmap-gmap-0.1.tgz

 

 

patch -p0 < gpsmap-gmap-0.1/gpsmap-gmap-0.1.diff

 

 

./configure

 

 

make

 

 

make install

 

 

Copy the index.html file and the mapfiles folder to your own webserver (e.g. www.wirelessdefence.org/gpsmap)

 

 

Producing Maps with Google Mapping (Requires Web Server):

 

To test if your kismet build is in the right state to produce maps, simply type gpsmap and ensure Usage: is returned, not various errors (which indicates a problem with your installation).

 

 

gpsmap options:

 

-j  = use googlemaps

-o = output file

-u = draw convex hull of data points

-r  = draw estimated range circles

 

gpsmap -j -o gpsdata.js -u -r /tmp/Kismet-Mar-16-2006-2.gps

 

 

After running gpsmap on a .gps file copy the output .js file to the same folder as the index.html file and name it gpsdata.js

 

You also need to get a key for using google maps from google (http://www.google.com/apis/maps/signup.html). Insert this key into the top of the index.html file in the location of KEYHERE

 

 

Now browse to your webserver with a browser (e.g. www.wirelessdefence.org/gpsmap)

 

 

 

There is the option to view Satellite imagery, standard images or a hybrid mode. 

 

There is also the option to zoom in/out or view devices by encryption type (e.g. None, WEP, WPA)
