WPA2-PSK Wi-Fi Cracking with Dictionary Method

Product ID No: SG/ODL/13037 Founder & Director: Harpreet Khattar & Kshitij Adhlakha Resource Person: Chetan Soni
Secugenius Security Solutions SCO-13A, Model Town Extn, Near Krishna Mandir, Ludhiana-141002, Punjab India, ,

Basic Steps:
Put interface in monitor mode. Find wireless network (protected with WPA2 and a Pre Shared Key) Capture all packets. Wait until you see a client and deauthenticate the client, so the handshake can be captured. Crack the key using a dictionary file.

Step 1
Type iwconfig to check the wireless interface.

Step 2
Now Start the wireless interface in monitor mode by typing this command, root@bt:~# airmon-ng start wlan0 Monitor mode is the mode whereby your card can listen to every packet in the air. Normally your card will only hear packets addressed to you.

You can also use this command, root@bt:~# airmon-ng start wlan0 <Channel No> root@bt:~# airmon-ng start wlan0 11

Step 3
Now we can use interface mon0 Lets find a wireless network that uses WPA2/PSK by typing this command, root@bt:~# airodump-ng mon0

Stop airodump-ng by pressing [CTRL+C] and run it again.

Step 4
Now Next step is to collect authentication handshake, Now run airodump-ng to capture the 4-way authentication handshake for the AP we are interested in,
root@bt:~# airodump-ng c 11 --bssid 00:22:93:8F:D9:F5 mon0 w chetancracking Where, -c 11 stands for channel for the wireless network. --bssid 00:22:93:8F:D9:F5 is the Access point MAC address. -w chetancracking is the file name prefix for the file which will contain the IVs. mon0 is the interface name.

Do NOT use the --ivs option. You must capture the full packets.

Step 5
Now Next step is to deauthenticate the wireless client by typing this command,
root@bt:~# aireplay-ng -0 1 a 00:22:93:8F:D9:F5 c 78:E4:00:AE:EC:06 mon0

Where: -0 means deauthentication 1 is the number of deauths to send (you can send multiple if you wish) -a 00:22:93:8F:D9:F5 is the MAC address of the access point -c 78:E4:00:AE:EC:06 is the MAC address of the client you are deauthing mon0 is the interface name This step is optional. If you are patient, you can wait until airodump-ng captures a handshake when one or more clients connect to the AP. You only perform this step if you opted to actively speed up the process. The other constraint is that there must be a wireless client currently associated with the AP. If there is no wireless client currently associated with the AP, then you have to be patient and wait for one to connect to the AP so that a handshake can be captured.

This step sends a message to the wireless client saying that that it is no longer associated with the AP. The wireless client will then hopefully reauthenticate with the AP. The reauthentication is what generates the 4-way authentication handshake we are interested in collecting.

Step 6
Now final step is to run aircrack-ng to crack the pre-shared key by typing this command,
root@bt:~# aircrack-ng chetancracking-01.cap w /pentest/passwords/wordlists/darkc0de.lst

Where, -w password.lst is the name of the dictionary file. (Remember to specify the full path if the file is not located in the same directory.) *.cap is name of group of files containing the captured packets. (Notice in this case that we used the wildcard * to include multiple files.) Now at this point, aircrack-ng will start attempting to crack the pre-shared key. Depending on the speed of your CPU and the size of the dictionary, this could take a long time, even days.
