Description Fabian Affolter 2008-11-01 13:18:16 UTC
Spec URL:
Project URL:

FakeAP generates thousands of counterfeit 802.11b access points. Hide in 
plain sight amongst Fake AP's cacophony of beacon frames. As part of a 
honeypot or as an instrument of your site security plan, Fake AP confuses
Wardrivers, NetStumblers, Script Kiddies, and other undesirables.

Koji scratch build:

RPM rpmlint output:
[fab@laptop024 noarch]$ rpmlint -i fake*

Uh, I thought this would be a fast review, but I noticed that there is a missing dependency. uses


which seems not to exist in Fedora. It seems you need to package at least this first:

How did you use this package without this? Btw. the devel release of aircrack-ng also allows to create fake accesspoints which works pretty well. There is also some integration into metasploit.

Comment 2 Fabian Affolter 2008-12-17 09:45:49 UTC
At the moment there is no Prism2/2.5/3 based 802.11b cards in my hardware pool, I tested only if fakeap runs and not if it's really working.  So I miss the dependency of hostap_crypt_conf.  Thanks for pointing me to that.
I didn't know that aircrack-ng provide such functionality.  Because of that I think that it would be better to drop this request or postpone it till hostap-utils is available.
