Introduction

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

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.

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).

We also maintain patches for:

  • Packet injection for Linux drivers
  • HostAPd and Freeradius, called WPE (Wireless Pawn Edition) patches, to attack WPA Enterprise.

Aircrack-ng was started at the end of February 2006. It is the Next Generation of aircrack with lots of new features:

DateTitleContent
30 Nov 16Wireless Pawn Edition (WPE) patches updatedIf you want to attack WPA Enterprise, applying WPE patches to HostAPd or Freeradius would do the job. However, they haven't been updated in a long time and still used old software versions (HostAPd 2.2 and Freeradius 2.1 which is EOL).

It is no longer the case as they are now available for the latest and greatest version of HostAPd and Freeradius. We took the job upon ourselves to update them and keep updating them whenever a new versions get released. The icing on the cake is that both of them are available as packages in Kali and a tutorial for HostAPd-WPE has been created.

All the details as well as a link to the patches can be found in this blog post.
15 Feb 16Aircrack-ng compilation matricesI tried to compile Aircrack-ng on a 'few' systems and different CPUs to see how it works and I was quite surprised by the amount of systems it can be compiled on (and most of the time, it can be compiled with both gcc and clang).

More details (matrices) in the blog.
14 Feb 16Aircrack-ng 1.2 RC 4Fourth release candidate. There will be another one, some small bugs still need to be fixed but it should happen fairly soon. On top of a big speed increase (up to 175% increase) that also fixes compilation on Cygwin 64 bit, it includes a ton of fixes and improvements on Linux, *BSD, Solaris and Cygwin on x86 and Linux on ARM and MIPS.

Current version

Latest version: 1.2 RC 3

IMPORTANT Information Regarding Windows Version IMPORTANT
The windows version requires you to develop your own DLLs to link aircrack-ng to your wireless card. The required DLLs are not provided in the download nor available anywhere on the Internet. Without these DLLs, the windows version will not function. Do NOT post questions or problems to the forum regarding the windows version. At present, there is no support provided.
