Subject:Passive MAC address monitoring/tracking?
Date:17:56:57 03/11/2013

I am reading a lot about WiFi tracking of smart-phones and would like to experiment with it. Is Kismet able to output MAC addresses in it's vicinity? Or should I use a different program?

From my understanding WiFi is using 10+ channels for communication. Are all smart-phones broadcasting their MAC on a certain channel? If not, wouldn't I need 10+ WiFi receivers to monitor all channels at the same time?

Cheers
