Aircrack-ng 1.2 RC 3 - WEP and WPA-PSK Keys Cracking Program

Monday, November 23, 2015

Aircrack-ng is an 802.11 WEP and WPA-PSK keys cracking program that can recover keys once enough data packets have been captured. It implements the standard FMS attack along with some optimizations like KoreK attacks, as well as the PTW attack, thus making the attack much faster compared to other WEP cracking tools.

Third release candidate and hopefully this should be the last one. It contains a ton of bug fixes, code cleanup, improvements and compilation fixes everywhere. Some features were added: AppArmor profiles, better FreeBSD support, including an airmon-ng for FreeBSD.
