Wardrive, Raspberry Pi Style! #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

RasPi as a handy low-power need war-biking project by Dave Bryan, via MAKE:

I purchased a Raspberry Pi a few weeks back. I found that I could power it, a WiFi card and a GPS from my 12000mah Li-Ion battery pack for about 12 hours.  What a great way to explore with out having to have a huge laptop or giant battery in my bag. 

From that I did a little bit of driving and biking with this tool kit, passively looking for and logging networks.  I could have easily used my NinjaTel phone (and will attempt this in the future), but I wanted something that I didn’t have to mess with to much and would have a long batter life to “power all the things”.

From this I found that out of 6,164 APs identified, that only %5 had WEP configured (which is flawed).  That is a total of 327 APs that still had WEP enabled.  Not to bad as a basic health check.  Of course more data would always be better.
