EvilAP_Defender is the leading open source, enterprise-class tool to discover and prevent Evil Twin Access Points (APs) from attacking wireless users. The Q-WiFi can discover and provide an email alert when an Evil Twin is discovered. In addition, it can perform a Denial of Service (“DoS”) attack to prevent the legitimate WiFi users from connecting to the Evil Twin AP. This can give network administrators and/or law enforcement time to locate and remove the Evil Twin AP.
Note: The DoS feature only works if the Evil Twin and legitimate AP have the same SSID but different BSSID, or is running on a different channel. (The BSSID – Basic Service Set Identifier - is the AP’s MAC address.) This prevents accidently crippling a legitimate AP. Whitelisting is done via a wizard during installation in order to recognize and allow legitimate Wireless Access Points (APs).
