KARMA Wireless Clients Utilities
KARMA is a set of tools for assessing the security of wireless clients at
multiple layers. Wireless sniffing tools discover clients and their
preferred/trusted networks by passively listening for 802.11 Probe Request
Using the information gathered passively, individual clients can be
targeted by creating a Rogue AP for one of their probed networks (which
they may join automatically) or using a custom driver that responds to
probes and association requests for any SSID. Higher-level fake services
can then capture credentials or exploit client-side vulnerabilities on the
KARMA includes patches for the Linux MADWifi driver to allow the creation
of an 802.11 Access Point that responds to any probed SSID. Making a
client that looks for the SSID 'linksys', see the Linux machine as a
'linksys' device, while making it appear as 'tmobile' to someone else.
Currently, these releases are BYOX (Bring Your Own Exploits), although a
number of client-side exploits have been written, tested and demonstrated
within this framework. Some may be included in a future release. Automated
agent deployment is also planned.
