Chapter 9 : Wireless Attacks

to test a wireless pentesting, I had to set up wireless environment on Kali linux. I have to download [compat-wireless-2010-06-26-p] and extract it to set up. Also i have to turn off my desktop wifi connection and let my USB wifi adapter(TP-link) to activate on my virtual machine, and connect it over there.  After i setup the wireless network, i follow the instruction to do WPA/WPA2 cracking. I stop airmon-ng service, and change the MAC address of Kali as 00:11:22:33:44:55 to change the identity on the network and restart the airmon-ng. After then, you can check MAC address by inputting “ifconfig

Next i use airodump command  “airodump-ng mon0” to find available networks (wireless) nearby. You might want to wait 1 or 2 minutes to find available wireless access point. And I select the target and write down target’s MAC address and channel number.

Once you are done, you can stop the airodump process by pressing “ctrl+c” to break the program. Next step is airodump command to monitor handshake connection about target. “airodump-ng -c 6 -w wpcrack14[or anything you wanna name] –bssid 8C:04:FF:AF:FB:51 mon0”.

While it’s collecting network information into local directory named as [wpcrack14], the book suggested to send de-authentication packet to target AP, so we can capture  WPA handshake. So I send the command which will disconnect all the users on the target AP, so we can monitor handshake automatically when they reconnect.

Once you get a WPA handshake and stored into your library, you can use aircrack to try dictionary password to crack the target’s AP’s password.

The last step is very simple because we  are using aircrack to try every dictionary passwords from wordlist. Sometimes, it says ‘ passphrase not in dictionary’ which means you need more wordlist.
