Automated WiFi Cracking

Wifite is a Linux based WiFi cracking tool (comes pre-installed on Kali) coded in Python. It is used to automate the hacking process and aims at minimizing the user inputs by scanning and using Python for automation techniques. Wifite is capable of Hacking WEP, WPA/2 and WPS, but not alone.

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.

WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is the weakest and an outdated encryption mechanism used by the routers(access points) to encrypt data packets passing through the router itself.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