Description Fabian Affolter 2008-11-01 09:18:16 EDT
Spec URL: http://fab.fedorapeople.org/packages/SRPMS/fakeap.spec
SRPM URL: http://fab.fedorapeople.org/packages/SRPMS/fakeap-0.3.2-1.fc9.src.rpm
Project URL: http://www.blackalchemy.to/project/fakeap/

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.

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

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.
