Pentesting Tools Wireless Attacks

Aircrack-ng 1.2 Release Candidate 2

Aircrack-ng is an 802.11 WEP and WPA-PSK keys cracking program that can recover keys once enough data packets have been captured. It implements the standard FMS attack along with some optimizations like KoreK attacks, as well as the PTW attack, thus making the attack much faster compared to other WEP cracking tools.

Here is the second release candidate. Along with a LOT of fixes, it improves the support for the Airodump-ng scan visualizer. Airmon-zc is mature and is now renamed to Airmon-ng. Also, Airtun-ng is now able to encrypt and decrypt WPA on top of WEP. Another big change is recent version of GPSd now work very well with Airodump-ng.

Aircrack-ng is an 802.11 WEP and WPA-PSK keys cracking program that can recover keys once enough data packets have been captured. It implements the standard FMS attack along with some optimizations like KoreK attacks, as well as the all-new PTW attack, thus making the attack much faster compared to other WEP cracking tools. In fact, Aircrack-ng is a set of tools for auditing wireless networks.
