Install

pip3 install trackerjacker

Usage

Find detailed usage like this:

trackerjacker -h

There are 2 major usage modes for trackerjacker: map mode and track mode:

Map mode example

Map mode is used to find the Access Points and Devices within the range. Think of it like nmap for raw 802.11 mode.

$ trackerjacker --map -i wlan0mon
Channels available on wlan0mon: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 36, 38, 40, 44, 46, 48, 52, 54, 56, 60, 62, 64, 100, 102, 104, 108, 110, 112]

Map mode outputs wifi_map.yaml, which looks something like this:

Track mode example

Track mode allows you to specify some number of MAC addresses to watch, and if the specified devices exceeds the threshold (in bytes), an alert will be triggered.

$ trackerjacker -i wlan0mon --track -m 7C:70:BC:57:F0:77 -t 450000 --alert-command "/root/trigger_alarm.sh" --channels-to-monitor 11
Channels available on wlan0mon: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 36, 38, 40, 44, 46, 48, 52, 54, 56, 60, 62, 64, 100, 102, 104, 108, 110, 112]

2017-03-27 22:22:19.155201: Detected 7c:70:bc:57:f0:77
	Congratulations! You've fired the alarm_triggered event

Example use-cases

  • Map out all the nearby wifi devices (and which devices are asspciated with which Access Points)
  • Track when a particular MAC is seen
  • Track when a particular MAC sends some threshold of data in some time period
  • Track when traffic is happening on a particular Access Point
  • Find/track all connections on a particular Access Point

Example usage

Example: configuring with command-line args

python3 trackerjacker.py -m 8a:23:ab:75:8e:2b --alert-command "date >> /tmp/test.txt"

Notes:

  • This monitors for the MAC address: 8a:23:ab:75:8e:2b
  • When detected, the current time is appended to /tmp/test.txt

Example: configuring with config file

python3 trackerjacker.py -c my_config.json

And here’s the example config file called my_config.json:

{
    "iface": "wlan0mon",
    "devices_to_watch": [
        {"mac": "5f:cb:53:1c:8a:2c", "name": "Bob's iPhone"},
        {"mac": "32:44:1b:d7:a1:5b", "name": "Alice's iPhone"},
        {"mac": "f2:43:2b:e5:c3:6d", "name": "Security camera", "threshold": 20000},
        "44:61:32:C6:34:8F"],
    "aps_to_watch": [{"bssid": "c6:23:ef:33:cc:a2"}],
    "threshold_bytes": 1,
    "threshold_window": 10,
    "channels_to_monitor": [1, 6, 11, 52],
    "channel_switch_scheme": "round_robin"
}

A few notes about this:

  • threshold_bytes is the default threshold of bytes which, if seen, a causes the alert function to be called
  • threshold_window is the time window in which the threshold_bytes is analyzed.
  • devices_to_watch is a list which can contain either strings (representing MACs) or dicts (which allow the specification of a name and threshold)

    • name is simply what a label you want to be printed when this device is seen.
    • threshold in the “Security camera” is how many bytes must be seen
  • channels_to_monitor – list of 802.11 wifi channels to monitor. The list of channels your wifi card supports is printed when trackerjacker starts up. By default, all supported channels are monitored.
  • channel_switch_scheme – either default, round_robin, or traffic_based. traffic_based determines the channels of most traffic, and probabilistically monitors them more.

Example: Enable/Disable monitor mode on interface

Enable monitor mode:

python3 trackerjacker.py --monitor-mode-on -i wlan0

Disable monitor mode:

python3 trackerjacker.py --monitor-mode-off -i wlan0mon

Note that trackerjacker will automatically enable/disable monitor mode if necessary. This functionality is just useful if you want to enable monitor mode on an interface for use with other applications.

Example: Set adapter channel

python3 trackerjacker.py --set-channel 11 -i wlan0

Note that trackerjacker will automatically switch channels as necessary during normal map/track actions. This option is just useful if you want to set the channel on an interface for use with other applications.

Roadmap

  • Hosted in PyPI
  • Radio signal strength
  • “Jack” mode – deauth attacks
  • Mac (OS X) support
