KisMAC is a free, open source network stumbler that operates in passive mode, allowing the program to run completely invisibly without sending any probe requests (unlike active scanners).

In addition to standard stumbler logging and graphing features, KisMAC reveals cloaked SSIDs and can perform deauthentication, packet injection, and several other attacks against WEP/WPA encrypted packets. GPS mapping is also included.

KisMAC is the only stumbler to support Apple's Airport Extreme card in passive mode. It is also compatible with original Airport cards and several third party cards (see website).

The project is not dead, by the way. While we have lost the developer that started it all, we still have the source, and are moving development outside of Germany.

This is a very cool application... there is no real competition for amazingly useful wireless stumblers. That said, tread carefully---this thing broke my wireless card completely...
