If you remember in the previous part, we learned Speeding up WPA2 Cracking Using Pre-generated PMKs. Which certainly uses CPU as the primary part for the calculations of the PMKs. It surely gives us speed for WPA2 cracking as while using PMKs for cracking we are not performing actual calculations in real-time.

If you are following the series from the very beginning you must be familiar with the Handshake we captured and used it with a Wordlist to crack the WPA2-PSK. As there is a tremendous possibility for WPA2 passphrases as they can be AlphaNumeric including special characters that too with 8-63 characters long.

WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is the weakest and an outdated encryption mechanism used by the routers(access points) to encrypt data packets passing through the router itself.

As we studied here, WEP uses 64-bit and 128-bit encryption as a standard, but security researchers discovered many flaws in the encryption mechanism of WEP , like static key generation, fast re-keying method.
