aircrack ng a 802.11 WEP / WPA PSK key cracker
aircrack ng [options] <.cap / .ivs file(s)>
aircrack ng is an 802.11 WEP and WPA/WPA2 PSK key cracking program.
It can recover the WEP key once enough encrypted packets have been captured with airodump ng. This part of the aircrack ng suite determines the WEP key using
two fundamental methods. The first method is via the PTW approach (Pyshkin, Tews, Weinmann). The main advantage of the PTW approach is that very few data
packets are required to crack the WEP key. The second method is the FMS/KoreK method. The FMS/KoreK method incorporates various statistical attacks to dis
cover the WEP key and uses these in combination with brute forcing.
Additionally, the program offers a dictionary method for determining the WEP key. For cracking WPA/WPA2 pre shared keys, a wordlist (file or stdin) or an
airolib ng has to be used.
Shows the help screen.
Force the attack mode, 1 or wep for WEP and 2 or wpa for WPA PSK.
Select the target network based on the ESSID. This option is also required for WPA cracking if the SSID is cloacked. For SSID containing special char
acters, see http://www.aircrack ng.org/doku.php?id=faq
