Nzyme v2.0.0-alpha.10 has been released

April 2, 2024

The next nzyme alpha release is officially available and brings the long awaited WiFi trilateration features, together with a lot of data processing improvements and time range selectors across the entire web interface.

Let’s look at what’s new!


  • New Feature: WiFi Trilateration
  • New Feature: Time Range Selectors
  • New nzyme-tap data processing architecture for high throughput scenarios
  • Many bugfixes and improvements.

New Feature: WiFi Trilateration

What do you do after nzyme identifies a WiFi device as a threat? How do you remove a rogue access point or bad actor from the premises? An extremely critical step in this kind of incident response is to determine the physical location of the rogue device.

Trilateration is the process of determining the physical location of the source of a radio frequency signal using the recorded signal strength. Nzyme can now automatically perform trilateration if you have at least three taps placed on the same floor of a building.

The nzyme trilateration documentation goes into much more detail on this topic. Happy hunting!

New Feature: Time Range Selectors

You can now select the time range of almost all widgets and charts in the web interface. The selector supports quick range presets as well as relative and absolute time range selections.

Remaining charts and widgets with no time range selector will be equipped with it over the next releases.

Download & Upgrading

All packages are available for download on the downloads page. Upgrading is easy. Please follow the release notes on the downloads page.

The nzyme-tap configuration file has a few new mandatory configuration settings. Make sure to set them according to the upgrade notes or your tap won’t start.

New installations should follow the installation documentation.
