Why to create a new tool if we already have tools like Vistastumbler.
Below I wrote some of the reasons:
- Lately been playing with Windows WiFi Native API(Abusing the Windows WiFi native API to create a Covert Channel).
- Wanted a command line tool (Vistastumbler is out).
- Wanted something a little bit more flexible that netsh.
The problem is when you have a big list of networks, it would be nice to have a simpler output to see networks easily. I also think that the information provided is not enough for someone that has advance knowledge on wireless networks and wants some extra information.
So the tool I wrote has two output mode for now(I thinking in adding some more that are useful when working with other wireless tools).
As we can see wwtool has the capability to show information elements. In this first version the tool is capable of parsing some information elements in case the tool is not able to parse the IE data it shows a hex dump of the information.
Features I'm working on
- Pcap output (yes, the tool is going to be able to dump to a pcap file beacons frames).
- Kismet csv compatible output.
- Keep running so it's useful when wardriving.
- Be able to work with multiple interfaces.
- Add some support for more IE.
