Subject:Building a Wireless Intrusion Detection System Using Kismet
Date:03:59:54 27/11/2007

I was considering building a Wireless Intrusion Detection System using Kismet to help detect any rogue wireless access points and NICs in ad-hoc network mode. What I'm thinking of configuring is a server with a wireless NIC card running Kismet. I would then whitelist legal access points and set it up to email me as soon as non-authorized access point is introduced as well as details (MAC address, time, etc.). Would I need any software other than Kismet? Also, what hardware would you recommend for the wireless NIC card? Can I tune the strength of the reception signal so that it covers only a certain area (our office)? Thanks for your help.
