Aircrack-ng is a complete suite of tools to assess WiFi network security.

It focuses on different areas of WiFi security:

  • Monitoring: Packet capture and export of data to text files for further processing by third party tools.
  • Attacking: Replay attacks, deauthentication, fake access points and others via packet injection.
  • Testing: Checking WiFi cards and driver capabilities (capture and injection).
  • Cracking: WEP and WPA PSK (WPA 1 and 2).

All tools are command line which allows for heavy scripting. A lot of GUIs have taken advantage of this feature. It works primarily Linux but also Windows, OS X, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, as well as Solaris and even eComStation 2.

Aircrack-ng 1.3 10 Jul 18

We're bringing more good stuff in this release. We've been busy fixing bugs left and right, some of them thanks to Coverity Scan, valgrind and other static code analyzers.

We've also refactored some of the code and improved the code quality along the way. We can now successfully build across lot of platforms (Windows, Linux, BSD, OSX) and CPU architectures (x86 and 64 bit, ARM v7, ARM v8, PowerPC, etc).

The most notable changes are in Aircrack-ng. It gets a speed bump in most CPU architectures we support, the ability to pause/restore cracking session and using HCCAPx files.

Other tools also see improvements. All the details about them as well as pretty performance graphs, can be found in our blog post.

Aircrack-ng 1.2 15 Apr 18

It's been way too long since the last stable release.

Compared to the last stable, 1.1, this release has a huge amount of improvements and fixes. The changelog since 1.1 is almost 300 lines long (1200+ commits). Code quality has improved, in parts thanks to Coverity Scan. We now switched to GitHub completely and have a few buildbots (including one for Windows) to test building and run the test suite on a different platforms.

Check out our blog post and changelog for more details.
