These and hundreds of other Wi-Fi security tools are readily available as Internet downloads. However, your ability to run them depends upon test platform, OS, and Wi-Fi adapter(s). A good way to get started is to download a LiveCD/DVD/USB Linux distro for Wi-Fi pentesting. Our recommendation: BackTrack4, which includes many of the above-mentioned free Wi-Fi security tools.
