Hi, welcome to another article, in this article I will show you the best wifi hacking tools in kali Linux OS. We have already discussed the basic wifi hack to move forward if you haven’t read it that means you need to read it with the links below.
2. Wifi hacking Pre-connection attack
3. Wifi hacking gaining access
4. Wifi hacking post-connection attack
Kali-Linux have more wifi hacking tools but this article we discussed with the top 10 only let’s start
Top 10 wifi hacking tools
Aircrack is one of the most popular tools for WEP / WPA / WPA2 cracking. The Aircrackng suite contains tools to capture packets and handshakes, de-authenticate connected clients, and generate traffic, as well as tools to perform brute force and dictionary attacks. Aicrackng is an all-in-one suite containing the following tools
1. Aircrack-ng for wireless password cracking
2. Aireplay-ng to generate traffic and client de-authentication
3. Airodump-ng for packet capturing
4. Airbase-ng to configure fake access points
2. Reaver Wifi Hacking Tools
Reaver is another popular tool for hacking into wireless networks and specifically targets WPS vulnerabilities. Reaver performs brute force attacks against the Wifi Protected Setup (WPS) registrar PIN codes to retrieve the WPA / WPA2 passphrase. Since many router manufacturers and ISPs often enable WPS by default, routers are immediately vulnerable to this attack.
PixieWPS is a relatively new tool included with Kali Linux and also targets a WPS vulnerability. PixieWPS is written in C and is used to force offline WPS PIN code by taking advantage of low or no entropy of vulnerable access points. This is called the pixie dust attack. PixieWPS requires a modified version of Reaver or Wifite to work. As this tool has become very popular in a short time
4. Wifite Wifi Hacking Tools
Wifite is an automated tool to attack multiple WEP / WPA / WPA2 and WPS encrypted wireless networks. On startup, Wifite will ask for a few settings to work with and Wifite will do all the hard work. It will capture WPA handshakes, automatically deauthenticate connected clients, spoof your MAC address, and log cracked passwords.
Wireshark is one of the best network protocol analysis tools available, if not the best. With Wireshark, you can analyze a network in detail to see what is going on. Wireshark can be used for real-time packet capture, deep inspection of hundreds of protocols, packet browsing and filtering, and is cross-platform.
oclHashcat is not a dedicated Wi-Fi hacking tool and is not included with Kali Linux, but it can perform brute force and dictionary attacks on captured handshakes very quickly while using a GPU. After using the Aircrackng suite, or any other tool, to capture the WPA handshake, you can crack it with oclHashcat using your GPU. Using a GPU with oclHashcat, instead of a CPU with Aicrackng, will significantly speed up the cracking process. An average GPU can try about 50,000 combinations per second with oclHashcat.
7. Fern Wifi Cracker
Fern Wifi Cracker is a wireless security attack and control tool written in Python. Fern Wifi Cracker is the first dedicated Wifi hacking tool on this list that has a graphical user interface. Fern can decrypt and recover WEP, WPA, and WPS keys and contains tools to perform MiTM attacks.
8. Wash Wifi Hacking Tools
Wash is a tool for determining whether an access point has WPS enabled or not. You can also use Wash to check if an access point has blocked WPS after several Reaver attempts. Many access points lock themselves as a security measure when the PIN code is violently forced. Wash WPS is included in the Reaver package and is a standard tool with Kali Linux.
Crunch is a fantastic and easy to use tool for generating custom wordlists that can be used for dictionary attacks. Since the success rate of each dictionary attack depends on the quality of the wordlist used, you can’t avoid creating your own wordlist. Especially when you want to create wordlists based on router default passwords. Crunch can also be redirected directly to other tools like Aircrackng. This feature can save you a lot of time as you won’t have to wait for Crunch to generate large lists of passwords before you can use them.
Last but not least in this top 10 Wifi Hacking Tools is Macchanger. macchanger is a little utility that can be used to spoof your MAC address to a random MAC address or you can make up your own. Spoofing your MAC address for wifi hacking might be necessary in order to avoid MAC filters or to mask your identity on a wireless network.
