Description: In this episode of Hack of the Day - we will look at how to create a Wireless SSID Sniffer in just 10 lines of Python. Rather than just type the code in a script and run it - we first take a look at Scapy - the library we plan to use for this course. We then set the sniffing interface to "mon0" and sniff packets, print them a a PDF and understand the packet layout. After this, we write our 10 line SSID sniffer using scapy and remove duplicate entries by maintaining a list of access point mac address we have already displayed to the user:
