  • Debian 8+

Chef

  • Chef 12.9+

Attributes

The attributes in this cookbook are used to drive the configuration dynamically. The following are used for the gpsd service.

  • enable_gpsd - Install and use gpsd. Defaults to true
  • start_daemon - Start the daemon. Defaults to true
  • gpsd_options - Options to pass to the daemon. Defaults to an empty string
  • devices - Path to device. This is only needed for serial devices. Defaults to an
  • empty string
  • usbauto - Auto discover USB devices. Defaults to true

The remaining attributes in the attributes/default.rb are directly from the kismet.conf file and are namespaced under node['kismet']['config']. Each attribute key corresponds to a configuratino option in the kismet.conf file.

Values can be an Integer, String or an Array. Integer and String values will be rendered like this:

key=value

Array values will get an entry for each element in the array. For example, a value of ['value', 'sale', 'option'] will be rendered like this:

key=value
key=sale
key=option

The Ruby literals "false" and "true" are not used for values of Kismet configuration options. They are string values instead.

In practical terms, these attributes:

default['kismet']['config']['version'] = "2009-newcore"
default['kismet']['config']['hidedata']     = "true"
default['kismet']['config']['enablespeech'] = "false"
default['kismet']['config']['alertbacklog']     = 50
default['kismet']['config']['ouifile'] = [
  '/etc/manuf',
  '/usr/share/wireshark/wireshark/manuf',
  '/usr/share/wireshark/manuf'
]

Will be rendered in /etc/kismet/kismet.conf:

version=2009-newcore
hidedata=true
enablespeech=false
alertbacklog=50
ouifile=/etc/manuf
ouifile=/usr/share/wireshark/wireshark/manuf
ouifile=/usr/share/wireshark/manuf

Usage

Modify attributes for the configuration as required in a role. Add recipe[kismet] to your node's run list.
