Its only on Hackers For Charity at the moment, but he said it would be released publicly in the near future. I would subscribe to the website to read it, however, I am a poor thesis student. It will definitely be a good guide. Oh, and maybe check out the "Kismet Hacking" book, got some good info on drones, but a little old now, and focuses on the old Kismet versions.

Hi,

Many thanks for the info.

I have been using the redinlinesec guide but must admit I can't get it to compile, i'm at a stage where there are multiple errors with util.cc. If I manage to get a working compile I will be happy to update the list.

Perhaps I should try 2010-01 - is that a similar procedure for compiling, and does it identify drones in the output XML (which is the only reason I am updating).

Thanks again

Mike
