How to Crack Wi-Fi Passwords
This tutorial is for education purpose only.(You are responsible for youractions)
An internet connection has become a basic necessity in our modern lives. Wireless hot-spots (commonly known as
can be found everywhere!If you have a PC with a wireless network card, then you must have seen many networksaround you. Sadly most of these networks are secured with a network security key.Have you ever wanted to use one of these networks? You must have desperately wantedto check your mail when you shifted to your new house. The hardest time in your life iswhen your internet connection is down.Cracking those Wi-Fi passwords is your answer to temporary internet access. This is acomprehensive guide which will teach even complete beginners how to crack WEPencrypted networks, easily.
How Are Wireless Networks Secured?
In a secured wireless connection, internet data is sent in the form of encrypted packets.These packets are encrypted with network security keys. If you somehow manage to get hold of the key for a particular wireless network you virtually have access to thewireless internet connectionBroadly speaking there are two main types of encryptions used:
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy):
This is the most basic form of encryption. This has become an unsafe option as it isvulnerable and can be cracked with relative ease. Although this is the case many peoplestill use this encryption.
WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access):
This is the more secure alternative. Efficient cracking of the passphrase of such anetwork requires the use of a wordlist with the common passwords. In other words youuse the old fashioned method of trial and error to gain access. Variations include WPA-2which is the most secure encryption alternative till date. Although this can also becracked using a wordlist if the password is common, this is virtually uncrackable with a
strong password. That is, unless the WPA PIN is still enabled (as is the default on manyrouters).Hacking WEP passwords is relatively fast.
 Architecture of the attack:
This attack is known an Man In The Middle Attack(MITM).Through this attack we sniff the packets and after capturing them we can what the victim has sent to the router.User requests to example.com request goes to router(it requiresacknowledgement)Router goes to user and fetches example.com with key user gets access toexample.com
Here is what you would require to crack a WEP key:
Backtrack 5R1
A Wifi adapter capable of injecting packets , For this tutorial I will use AlfaAWUS036H which is a very popular card and it performs well with Backtrack 
First Login to your Backtrack and plug in your Wifi adpter , Open a new konsoleand type in the following commandsifconfig wlan0 upwhere wlan0 is the name of the wireless card ,it can be different .To see all wirelesscards connected to your system simply type in
" iwconfig ".
Putting your WiFi Adapter on Monitor Mode
To begin, you’ll need to first put your
wireless adapter into monitor mode , Monitormode is the mode whereby your card can listen to every packet in the air , You can put your card into monitor mode by typing in the following commands
airmon-ng start (your interface)
Example :- airmon-ng start wlan0
 Now a new interface mon0 will be created , You can see the new interface is in monitormode by entering "
iwconfig mon0
" as shown
