nzyme – Free & Open WiFi Defense System – Lennart Koopmann – PSW #690

Nzyme is a new kind of WiFi IDS (WIDS) that detects adversaries by looking at hard to spoof characteristics of an attacker. Existing WIDS tend to look at extremely easy to spoof metadata like channels or BSSIDs. The new approach of nzyme looks at hardware fingerprints and physical attributes like signal strengths. For example, it constantly tries to follow the signal "track" of every WiFi access point in range and alerts once a second track appears because this is most likely someone spoofing the legitimate access point from a different location.
