OpenWIPS-ng is an open source and modular Wireless IPS (Intrusion Prevention System). It is composed of three parts:

  • Sensor(s): "Dumb" devices that capture wireless traffic and sends it to the server for analysis. Also responds to attacks.
  • Server: Aggregates the data from all sensors, analyzes it and responds to attacks. It also logs and alerts in case of an attack.
  • Interface: GUI manages the server and displays information about the threats on your wireless network(s).
