HOW TO HACK WI-FI Cracking
WPA2-PSK Passwords Using Aircrack-Ng
When Wi-Fi was first developed in the late 1990s, Wired Equivalent
Privacy was created to give wireless communications confidentiality. WEP,
as it became known, proved terribly flawed and easily cracked.

As a replacement, most wireless access points now use Wi-Fi Protected
Access II with a pre-shared key for wireless security, known as WPA2-PSK.
WPA2 uses a stronger encryption algorithm, AES, that’s very difficult to
crack—but not impossible.

The weakness in the WPA2-PSK system is that the encrypted password is
shared in what is known as the 4-way handshake. When a client
authenticates to the access point (AP), the client and the AP go through a
4-step process to authenticate the user to the AP. If we can grab the
password at that time, we can then attempt to crack it.

In this tutorial, we’ll look at using aircrack-ng and a dictionary attack
on the encrypted password after grabbing it in the 4-way handshake.

This took me quite some time to put together to share so please don’t just leave a shitty leech reply.

so if you left something stupid like “Ty”, just to see the guide, please go back and edit your reply before I see it.
Too much time is spent on stuff like this just to have a bunch of leeches grab it and walk away. Be nice by leaving a nice reply.
Step 1:
Put Wi-Fi Adapter in Monitor Mode with Airmon-Ng

Let’s start by putting our wireless adapter in monitor mode.
For this to work, we’ll need to use a compatible wireless network adapter.

This is similar to putting a wired adapter into promiscuous mode. It allows
us to see all of the wireless traffic that passes by us in the air. Let’s open a
terminal and type:

Bash:
airmon-ng start wlan0

Note that airmon-ng has renamed your wlan0 adapter to mon0 or something similar

Step 2:
Capture Traffic with Airodump-Ng

Now that our wireless adapter is in monitor mode, we have the capability
to see all the wireless traffic that passes by in the air. We can grab that
traffic by simply using the airodump-ng command.

This command grabs all the traffic that your wireless adapter can see and
displays critical information about it, including the BSSID (the MAC
address of the AP), power, number of beacon frames, number of data
frames, channel, speed, encryption (if any), and finally, the ESSID (what
most of us refer to as the SSID). Let’s do this by typing:

Bash:
airodump-ng mon0
Note all of the visible APs are listed in the upper part of the screen and the
clients are listed in the lower part of the screen. HOW TO HACK WI-FI Cracking

Step 3
Focus Airodump-Ng on One AP on One Channel

Our next step is to focus our efforts on one AP, on one channel, and
capture critical data from it. We need the BSSID and channel to do this.

Let’s open another terminal and type:

Bash:
airodump-ng –bssid 08:86:30:74:22:76 -c 6 –write WPAcrack mon0

  • 08:86:30:74:22:76 is the BSSID of the AP
  • -c 6 is the channel the AP is operating on
  • WPAcrack is the file you want to write to
  • mon0 is the monitoring wireless adapter

As you can see in the screenshot above, we’re now focusing on capturing
data from one AP with a ESSID of Belkin276 on channel 6. The Belkin276
is probably a default SSID, which are prime targets for wireless hacking as
the users that leave the default ESSID usually don’t spend much effort
securing their AP.

Step 4:
Aireplay-Ng Deauth
In order to capture the encrypted password, we need to have the client
authenticate against the AP. If they’re already authenticated, we can de-
authenticate them (kick them off) and their system will automatically re-
authenticate, whereby we can grab their encrypted password in the
process. Let’s open another terminal and type:

Bash:
aireplay-ng –deauth 100 -a 08:86:30:74:22:76 mon0

  • 100 is the number of de-authenticate frames you want to send
  • 08:86:30:74:22:76 is the BSSID of the AP
  • mon0 is the monitoring wireless adapter

Step 5
Capture the Handshake
In the previous step, we bounced the user off their own AP, and now when
they re-authenticate, airodump-ng will attempt to grab their password in
the new 4-way handshake. Let’s go back to our airodump-ng terminal and
check to see whether or not we’ve been successful.

Notice in the top line to the far right, airodump-ng says “WPA handshake.”

This is the way it tells us we were successful in grabbing the encrypted
password! That is the first step to success!

Step 6
Let’s Aircrack-Ng That Password!

Now that we have the encrypted password in our file WPAcrack, we can
run that file against aircrack-ng using a password file of our choice.
Remember that this type of attack is only as good as your password file. I’ll
be using the default password list included with aircrack-ng on
BackTrack named darkcOde HOW TO HACK WI-FI Cracking

We’ll now attempt to crack the password by opening another terminal and
typing:

Bash:
aircrack-ng WPAcrack-01.cap -w /pentest/passwords/wordlists/darkc0de

WPAcrack-01.cap is the name of the file we wrote to in the airodump-ng command
/pentest/passwords/wordlist/darkc0de is the absolute path to your password file

How Long Will It Take?
This process can be relatively slow and tedious.
Depending upon the length of your password list, you could be waiting a few minutes to a few days.
On my dual core 2.8 gig Intel processor, it’s capable of testing a little over 500
passwords per second. That works out to about 1.8 million passwords per
hour. Your results will vary.
When the password is found, it’ll appear on your screen. Remember, the
password file is critical. Try the default password file first and if it’s not
successful, advance to a larger, more complete password file such as one of
these

That’s it! Hopefully you have a better understanding now. Let me know if this helped you and if you have any information you feel as though was left out.
Don’t leak, don’t leech and stay awesome.
