Reaver implements a brute force attack against Wifi Protected Setup (WPS) registrar PINs in order to recover WPA/WPA2 passphrases, as described in

Reaver has been designed to be a robust and practical attack against WPS, and has been tested against a wide variety of access points and WPS implementations.

On average Reaver will recover the target AP's plain text WPA/WPA2 passphrase in 4-10 hours, depending on the AP. In practice, it will generally take half this time to guess the correct WPS pin and recover the passphrase.

Probably because it needs root ?

You can download in terminal using

wget --no-check-certificate

and, as root (devel-su)

dpkg -i reaver_1.4_armel.deb

It is because your packages have dont have "Section" at control file. And "Unknown" section cannot be installed on phone using standard methods.

Thanks, good to know.

But, according to
Only these control sections are mandatory ?

Yes, but you should comply Harmattan appendix for Debian Policy Manual. Specify user section or mark package as user visible.

How does one install this to Harmattan? I tried to do this from warehouse and it says "reaver is not user package". When downloading from website, it just says "installation failed".
