Wi-Fi Probe Requests Sniffer
This script allows you to sniff the Wi-Fi probe requests passing near your wireless interface.
Probe requests are sent by a station to elicit information about access points, in particular to determine if an access point is present or not in the nearby environment. Some devices (mostly smartphones and tablets) use these requests to determine if one of the networks they have previously been connected to is in range, leaking personal information.
Further details are discussed in this paper.
This software requires Python 3 and the following dependencies:
Also, tcpdump has to be installed and in the PATH.
pip3 install --upgrade sniff-probe-req
First of all, you need to enable the monitor mode of your wireless interface.
usage: sniff-probe-req [-h] [--debug] [-e ESSID [ESSID ...]] [--exclude EXCLUDE [EXCLUDE ...]] -i INTERFACE [--ignore-case] [-o OUTPUT] [-r REGEX] [-s STATION [STATION ...]] Wi-Fi Probe Requests Sniffer optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit --debug debug mode -e ESSID [ESSID ...], --essid ESSID [ESSID ...] ESSID of the APs to filter (space-separated list) --exclude EXCLUDE [EXCLUDE ...] MAC addresses of the stations to exclude (space- separated list) -i INTERFACE, --interface INTERFACE wireless interface to use (must be in monitor mode) --ignore-case ignore case distinctions in the regex pattern (default: false) -o OUTPUT, --output OUTPUT output file to save the captured data (CSV format) -r REGEX, --regex REGEX regex to filter the ESSIDs -s STATION [STATION ...], --station STATION [STATION ...] MAC addresses of the stations to filter (space- separated list)
