    Default Cain and Abel-like app for Linux?

    Is there no application for Linux like Cain and Abel for Windows that ties all these various apps together (Kismet, aircrack, airodump, airmon, etc) into a nice GUI? Command lines are powerful but they are also tedious and error prone. The problem with Cain and Abel is the wireless cracking functionality only works with the Cace USB adapter (which is $198).

    Sure there is its called Backtrack as for the gui that does all of that not to my knowledge best advice I can give you learn to love the command line make it your best friend.

    Maybe you should write one since our distro is not up to your standards.

    cowboy1900 you may find what you need one day for windows etc .. BUT *nix will always be first free and faster.

    Learn to love the command line because 99% of bleading edge securirty apps RUN in *nix so get used to it or you can go tell daddy to buy core impact and pretend you are 1337

    If you are looking for a GUI for aircrack, airodump, and airmon..shamanvirtuel wrote a nice GUI program, look for it in the Programming forum.

    However, like everyone else has said. Learn to love the command line because in this field you need to know it. Not everything comes out with an easy to use GUI for any point and click user to use, and there is a very good reason for that.

    Love your answer.

    IMO, Cain and Able is ok, but Backtrack is more bettererer

    Sorry for being a bit repetitive, but think about it this way.
    Every single interactive aspect of your Linux box is just a few letters ahead.
    No GUI will ever be able to do that.

    The world is full of morons who wait just for this to do some stupid damage without either trying to use the brain to understand what is behind everything.
    An easy GUI would be like honey for those morons.
    So i must agree with this choice.
    However, it is true that a clear skin would be useful to speed up the procedure, but you could make it by your own if you are able.

    Insulting another user in your first post is not the best way to start off in this forum.
