Subject:IDS Not Detecting Deauth Attack from aireplay-ng?
Date:10:44:56 11/03/2016

Hi all,

I have installed kismet on Ubuntu 15.10. The server and client start up fine and the gui displays the detected APs and client etc.

The alert log also show alerts relating to BSS which might be spoofed so it the logging appears to be configured correctly. In the /etc/kismet/kismet.conf file the alert setting for deauth flood is set.


When I run "aireplay-ng -0 10 -a <bssid> -c <client mac> wlan0" the client is deauthed but kismet does not detect the attack. I have tried "10","30","50" for the number of attempts to deauth the client and kismet does not raise any alert.

What can I do to get kismet to detect aircrack deauth attakcs?
