WAIDPS - Wireless Auditing, Intrusion Detection and Prevention System

WAIDPS - Wireless Auditing, Intrusion Detection and Prevention System is an open source project which is designed for both offensive and defensive purpose in mind.

This project is original created by SY Chua of SYWorks Programming. However, it is no longer maintained by him since 2014. The GitHub version is v1.0 R.6 and it is dated Oct 10, 2014. However, the demo in his tutorials and Youtube videos are displayed v1.0 R.7 dated Oct 11, 2014.

This software is a very good design in screen layout and good operation experience. Since v1.0 R.6 will crash when handshake is captured and it is not working properly on Kali Linux 2017.2, I modified the Python script to make it to work again in two days. Meanwhile, IEEE 802.11ac is also supported in my modification.

It is well tested on Kali Linux 2017.2. Other penetration testing Linux distributions may work too.

My modification is also an open source project and it is released under GPLv3.
