My customers want to see arubaOS IDS security feature. They want to perform a penetration test to aruba wifi networks. How can we do that? I mean which software or hardware should I use for IDS security test? I researched this issue from the internet, some linux distributions provides this penetration programs like backtrack or aircrack with some specific kernels but these operating systems needs built-in wifi ethernet cards which we haven’t got unfortunately I tried to use my cell phone (samsung galaxy s3 after rooting process) but I haven’t found any related usefull hacking test programs. Is there any testing tool for wifi network which aruba officially created? Or do you have any suggestion for this issue?

Aruba doesn't have nor create any hacking or pen-test programs, mostly because from an IA/Security standpoint, they wouldn't hold up to scrutiny (a vendor creating their own pen test tools to test their own security posture doesn't usually go over well heh).
Backtrack is the best distro for a laptop, but yes it does require a wireless card supported by the distro. Your other option is to buy a WiFi Pineapple Mark V (https://hakshop.myshopify.com/products/wifi-pineap

You also have the option of buying a wireless card (Supported cards) that supports passive mode. Download Kali Linux (formally backtrack) and youtube has a lot of tuturials on setting up Kali and running some basic attacks.
