  1. Wireless Penetration Testing: Fern

    Fern is a python based Wi-Fi cracker tool used for security auditing purposes. The program is able to crack and recover WEP/WPA/WPS keys and also run other network-based attacks on wireless or ethernet based networks. The tool is available both as open source and a premium model of the free...
  2. Wireless Penetration Testing: Password Cracking

    In this article, we will be demonstrating the various methods that can be used for Password Cracking for performing Penetration Testing on Wireless Devices. Table of Content Introduction Simulation Mechanism Pre-requisites Initial Setup Password Cracking Aircrack-ng cowpatty Hashcat John The...
  3. Wireless Penetration Testing: Detect Hidden SSID

    Introduction You see an SSID, you connect to it and you onboard a wireless network. But what if I wanted to prevent you from seeing my SSID and thus you are unable to connect? This can be done using the Hide SSID option under your router settings. However, hiding is not always the best option to...
  4. Wireless Penetration Testing: Airgeddon

    You’ll discover how to use airgeddon for Wi-Fi hacking in this article. It enables the capture of the WPA/WPA2 and PKMID handshakes in order to start a brute force assault on the Wi-Fi password key. It also aids in the creation of a fictitious AP for launching Evil Twin Attack by luring clients...
  5. Wireless Penetration Testing: Fluxion

    In this series of Wireless Penetration Testing techniques and tools, this time we will be focusing on Fluxion. It uses Social Engineering to manipulate the users to get the password of the wireless access points. Two attacks are supported by Fluxion which we will demonstrate in this article...
  6. Wireless Penetration Testing: Aircrack-ng

    In our series of Wireless Penetration Testing, this time we are focusing on a tool that has been around for ages. This is the tool that has given birth to many of the Wireless Attacks and tools. Aircrack-ng is not a tool but it is a suite of tools that all perform different types of attacks or...
  7. Wireless Penetration Testing: Bettercap

    Introduction According to its official repository here, bettercap is a powerful, easily extensible and portable framework written in Go that aims to offer to security researchers, red teamers and reverse engineers an easy to use, all-in-one solution with all the features they might possibly need...
  8. Wireless Penetration Testing: PMKID Attack

    PMKID attack was developed by Team Hashcat. Traditional handshake capture and brute force methods wait for client to de-authenticate and re-authenticate while PMKID attack doesn’t. Direct PMKID is captured in this attack and then cracked. This attack works on WPA and WPA2 protocols and recent...
  9. Wireless Penetration Testing: Wifite

    Introduction Wifite is a wireless auditing tool developed by Derv82 and maintained by kimocoder. You can find the original repository here. In the latest Kali Linux, it comes pre-installed. It’s a great alternative to the more tedious to use wireless auditing tools and provides simple CLI to...
  10. Wireless Penetration Testing: Wifipumpkin3

    Wifipumpkin3 is a framework that is built on python to give rogue access point attacks to red teamers and reverse engineers. In this article, we would look at how we can use this tool to create a bogus Wi-Fi access point for our victims to connect and how to exploit the system. Table of Content...
  11. Wireless Penetration Testing: SSID Discovery

    This article will depict “How to discover SSID for WiFi Network” using several tools designed for Windows and Linux platforms. SSID discovery is applicable in Wi-fi hacking or penetration testing. Table of Content inSSIDer Wireless NetView Microsoft Network Monitor NetSurveyor Kismet...
