Library for parsing kismet results from the .kismet database file.

Project description

This library can be used to analyze the results of the new Kismet version. To filter encryption types version "f07735c" (Aug 19, 2018) or later is required.

The following scripts will be installed:

1. **kismet_analyzer_aplist:** This script can be used to extract access points from the SQLite database *<db>.kismet* and export these results to *csv* and *kml*
2. **kismet_analyzer_clientlist** This script can be used to create a list of connected clients for a given SSID. The list is printed to stdout with one client mac per row.

## License

This script is licensed under the GNU General Public License in version 3. See for further details.

## Installation:
This library requires *simplekml* for exporting extracted information to *kml*. You can use *pip* to install the neccessary requirement.
pip install -r requirements.txt

The setup script can be used to install the library and requirements. It will create the above listed console commands.
python install

## Usage:

(venv)[kismet-analyzer]$ kismet_analyzer_aplist -h
usage: kismet_analyzer_aplist [-h] --in INFILE [--out OUTFILE] [--title TITLE]
[--ssid SSID] [--exclude-ssid EXCLUDESSID]
[--strongest-point] [--encryption ENCRYPTION]
[--csv] [--kml] [--verbose]

Kismet to KML Log Converter

optional arguments:
-h, --help Show this help message and exit
--in INFILE Input file (.kismet)
--out OUTFILE Output filename (optional)
--title TITLE Title embedded in KML file
--ssid SSID Only plot networks which match the SSID (or SSID
--exclude-ssid EXCLUDESSID
Exclude networks which match the SSID (or SSID
--strongest-point Plot points based on strongest signal
--encryption ENCRYPTION
Show only networks with given encryption type
--csv Export results to csv
--kml Export results to kml
--verbose Print MAC, SSID, encryption type to stdout


Export only access points with encryption type "Open" to csv and kml files:
kismet_analyzer_aplist --in input.kismet --out test --encryption "Open" --kml --csv
Exported 11 devices to test.csv
Exported 11 devices to test.kml
## Output example for kml exports

The script generates colored notes for exported access points. The color depends on the identified encryption type. WPA encrypted access points will be added with a green color, WEP encrypted networks will be displayed in orange and Open network are displayed in red. Networks were the encryption type could not be detected will be added as a yellow note. Each note contains detailed meta information about the access point (SSID, MAC address, frequency, channel, manufacturer, and a list of clients MAC addresses).
