‘KARMA is a set of tools for assessing the security of wireless clients at multiple layers. Wireless sniffing tools discover clients and their preferred/trusted networks by passively listening for 802.11 Probe Request frames.

Using the information gathered passively, individual clients can be targeted by creating a Rogue AP for one of their probed networks (which they may join automatically) or using a custom driver that responds to probes and association requests for any SSID. Higher-level fake services can then capture credentials or exploit client-side vulnerabilities on the host.

KARMA includes patches for the Linux MADWifi driver to allow the creation of an 802.11 Access Point that responds to any probed SSID. Making a client that looks for the SSID ‘linksys’, see the Linux machine as a ‘linksys’ device, while making it appear as ‘tmobile’ to someone else.

Currently, these releases are BYOX (Bring Your Own Exploits), although a number of client-side exploits have been written, tested and demonstrated within this framework. Some may be included in a future release. Automated agent deployment is also planned.’
