* Show a offline version of your website
* Anywhere and anytime develop php websites
* No need for expensive hosting
* Working at multiple locations at projects
* A good test before putting your website online
* And many more
designed for Backtrack4 RC1 distribution of Ubuntu. Linux only; no windows or osx support.
to attack multiple WEP and WPA encrypted networks at the same time. this tool is customizable to be automated with only a few arguments. can be trusted to run without supervision.
- sorts targets by power (in dB); cracks closest access points first
- automatically deauths clients of hidden networks to decloak SSIDs
- numerous filters to specify exactly what to attack (wep/wpa/both, above certain signal strengths, channels, etc)
- customizable settings (timeouts, packets/sec, channel, change mac address, etc)
- all WPA handshakes are backed up to wifite.py's current directory
- smart WPA deauthentication -- cycles between all clients and broadcast deauths
- stop any attack with Ctrl+C -- options: continue, move onto next target, skip to cracking, or exit
- switching WEP attack methods does not reset IVs
- SKA support (untested)
- displays session summary at exit; shows any cracked keys
- all passwords saved to log.txt
- built-in updater: "./wifite.py -upgrade" not automatic
- linux operating system,
- tested working with python 2.4.5 and python 2.5.2; might be compatible with other versions,
- patched wireless drivers: backtrack4 has many pre-patched wireless drivers,
- aircrack-ng suite: available via apt: apt-get install aircrack-ng or by clicking here,
- python-tk module: required for GUI, available via apt: apt-get install python-tk
- macchanger: not required; also available via apt: apt-get install macchanger
- pyrit: not required, optionally strips wpa handshake from .cap files
download the latest version:
wget -O wifite.py http://wifite.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/wifite.py
change permissions to executable:
chmod +x wifite.py
or, to see a list of commands with info:
gui mode (default):
the program contains lots of interactivity (waits for user input). these command-line options are meant to make the program 100% automated -- no supervision required.
to crack all WEP access points:
./wifite.py -all -nowpa
to crack all WEP access points with signal strength greater than (or equal to) 50dB:
./wifite.py -p 50 -nowpa
to attack all access points, use 'darkc0de.lst' for cracking WPA handshakes:
./wifite.py -all --dict /pentest/passwords/wordlists/darkc0de.lst
to attack all WPA access points, but do not try to crack -- any captured handshakes are saved automatically:
./wifite.py -all -nowpa --dict none
to crack all WEP access points greater than 50dB in strength, giving 15 minutes for each WEP attack method, and send packets at 600 packets/sec:
./wifite.py --power 50 -wepw 15 -pps 600
to attempt to crack WEP-encrypted access point "2WIRE752" endlessly -- program will not stop until key is cracked or user interrrupts with ^C):
./wifite.py -e "2WIRE752" -wepw 0
There is an alternate application for Symbian based mobile phones such as
Personally, i like Gravity more.
Then search for "case program" in the Apps Store. Before that, make sure you are logged in to iTunes account.
Select bumper case, and verify your iTunes account. You should see pending shipping order.

A DX Cluster for SWLs, Utility, and other DXers
iDXCluster is an easy to use DX Cluster program geared towards SW listeners, DXers, utility monitors, and others. It doesn't require a packet radio link, telnet, or any complicated software or setup, only an internet connection is required.
A DX Cluster is a way for DXers to share tips on what stations they are currently hearing. Stale DX news is useless, so a DX Cluster allows people to share their logging within seconds.
Just download the program, enter in your Name and location, and that's it. Logging from other listeners will be displayed on the cluster screen in real-time. You can submit your own loggings as well of course. You can also filter the types of loggings you want to see, so you don't have to see stations that you have no interest in.
Clicking on a logging line will bring up a window with some more detailed logging information, and eliminates the need to horizontally scroll to see the comments/etc on the right side.
iDXCluster is available for Windows 98-XP, Mac OS and OSX, and a Linux version will be available soon. Best of all, iDXCluster is FREE!
PSK31 lets you view PSK31 Radio transmissions on your iPad. Just connect it to a radio (or even set it next to the radio's speaker), tune in a PSK31 frequency, and watch the decodes.
For iPad, available on iTunes Store.
SSTV lets you decode and display Ham (Amateur) Radio SSTV (Slow Scan TV) transmissions on your iPad. Just connect it to an HF radio (or even set it next to the radio's speaker), tune in an SSTV frequency, and watch the pictures.
SSTV decodes all of the popular SSTV modes, including Robot, Scottie, Martin, and more.
Decoding of SSTV transmissions begins automatically as soon as the start of image audio signals are detected, and the image format is automatically selected. Manual control is also available for use when receiving conditions are poor. Timing signals (phase and skew) can be adjusted to compensate for mismatches with the sending station.
Received images can be saved - including automatically as they are received. You can review saved images, as well as send them via email, and use iTunes file sharing to transfer them to your computer.
For iPad, available on iTunes Store.
Transmission Line Calc allows you to perform several calculations related to RF transmission Lines.
After selecting from one of 29 different transmission lines, you specify the length and operating frequency. The characteristic impedance and velocity factor of the cable is displayed, and the attenuation (loss) as well as electrical length (in wavelengths and degrees) is displayed.
For iPhone and iPad, available on iTunes Store.
Field Strength Calc helps you determine the received strength of a transmitted signal.
Enter in the transmitter power, antenna gains, distance, and frequency, and the following are calculated:
* Field Strength (V/m and dbuV/m)
* Received voltage (V, dbuV)
* Received signal (dbuV)
For iPhone and iPad, available on iTunes Store.

SDR-RADIO.com is a Windows console for SDR receivers and transceivers. Designed for the Amateur Radio, short-wave listener and commercial community, the console will provide a powerful interface for the both SDR enthusiasts and professional users. The recommended hardware is the SDR range from RFspace.
The future of radio communications is Software Defined Radio:
- Inexpensive hardware such as the SoftRock series of receivers and transceivers,
- Excellent performance and strong signal handling,
- Features available with SDR which were previously only found on expensive high-end radios such as ICOM IC-7700, IC-7800 and the Yaesu FTDX-9000 series.
- RFSPACE SDR-IQ, SDR-14 and future receivers: Free
- Soundcard (SoftRock) and low-end SDR: Free
- Other: T.B.A.
No Radio Needed!
You don't need a radio to use the SDR-RADIO.com software - many Hams and SWLs have made their radios available over the internet. Just look at the On-Air Servers page for a list of the radios you can use.
SDR-14™Software Defined Radio, Spectrum Analyzer and Panoramic Adapter
The SDR-14™ is a 14-bit software defined radio receiver. It offers a broad range of spectrum analyzer and demodulation capabilities. The hardware samples the whole 0.05-30 MHz band using a high performance analog to digital converter (ADC) running at 66.6 MHz. The digital data from the ADC is processed into I and Q format using a direct digital converter (DDC). The I and Q data is then sent to the PC for processing using a USB 2.0 interface. All of the demodulation and spectral functions are done on the PC side.
The SDR-14™ comes with a High Frequency (HF) amplified front-end with switched attenuators and 1Hz tuning. A direct input port to the ADC is also included. This port can be used to sample signals directly up to 230 MHz+. This port can also be used to connect downconverters and spectrum analyzer front-ends.

It listens for callsigns in the PSK31 band sections, you can look up for any monitoring station who heard you callsigns. Good for PSK31 lovers!
