Wireless network detector and sniffer

Kismet is an 802.11 layer2 wireless network detector, sniffer, and intrusion detection system. Kismet will work with any wireless card which supports raw monitoring (rfmon) mode, and can sniff 802.11b, 802.11a, 802.11n, and 802.11g traffic (devices and drivers permitting). It can work with MacBook and MacBook Pro Atheros-based cards with which currently KisMac is unable to. Kismet identifies networks by passively collecting packets and detecting standard named networks, detecting (and given time, decloaking) hidden networks, and inferring the presence of non-beaconing networks via data traffic.

To install kismet, paste this in macOS terminal after installing MacPorts

sudo port install kismet
