Aircrack-ng is an 802.11 WEP and WPA-PSK keys cracking program that can recover keys once enough data packets have been captured. It implements the standard FMS attack along with some optimizations like KoreK attacks, as well as the all-new PTW attack, thus making the attack much faster compared to other WEP cracking tools. In fact, Aircrack-ng is a set of tools for auditing wireless networks.

Aircrack-ng is the next generation of aircrack with lots of new features:

|31 May 13||New forum||The new forum is now available.
You'll have to register again since it is a brand new installation. If you had more than 100 posts in the old forum, use the same email address to register.
I wanted to reinstall the old one before I gave access to this one but my provider, OVH, doesn't let me access my backed up data on the forum server that crashed a few weeks ago. And it looks like I won't be able to reinstall before the end of June (or whatever time they roll out their new cloud).
Support told me they prevent starting VM instance which is probably the reason why the instance crashed in the first place; reboot wasn't allowed in the interface, so it decided to stop (and thus lose my data).
|25 May 13||1.2 Beta 1 Release||After a few years, we finally got a release: 1.2 Beta 1. Enjoy
- Compilation fixes on all supported OSes.
- Makefile improvement and fixes.
- A lot of fixes and improvements on all tools and documentation.
- Fixed licensing issues.
- Added a few new tools and scripts (including distributed cracking tool).
- Fixed endianness and QoS issues.
Two more things:
- The forum will be ready in a few days.
- We are now using Travis CI for continuous integration.
|20 May 2013||Forum/Trac/SVN/GitHub/release||Trac was migrated to a new server. URL didn't change and it is now also available via HTTPS.
Subversion has been moved to another server/URL: http://svn.aircrack-ng.org. You can also use HTTPS but it's a self-signed certificate for now.
Just relocate your local copy and you're good to go.
The forum's cloud instance crashed a few weeks ago and the last backup I have is 10 month old. I am deeply sorry for the data loss. I wish I learned a different way to be more careful with backups but what is done is done :/
That backup will be available in read-only mode and I'll also install a brand new SMF.
There will be some announcements once the new forum is installed.
We also have a GitHub synced with our SVN thanks to clopez.
There will be a release (alpha or beta) this upcoming week-end. A lot of improvements and fixes have been done since the last release a few years ago and this is probably the longest changelog we've ever had.
More details about trac/svn and forum crash can be found in the blog.
|01 Apr 2013||April Fools - Wirelessly controlled traffic lights||Serious security flaw found in new traffic lights. A new kind of traffic light being used is controlled by an Access Point with simple passphrase to access it. More details in the blog.|
|08 Oct 2012||Blog post: Will my card work with Aircrack-ng?||Due to the amount of questions about new card and Aircrack-ng compatibility, I made a blog post about it.|
Latest version: 1.2 Beta 1
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.
The latest svn of the development sources can be found at trac.aircrack-ng.org.
A bug tracker is also available there.
The download and installation instructions can be found on the installation page.
A second, very light VMWare (15Mb required on disk) machine is available here with a mirror available here. The md5sum of the file is a42aa70fc6c752e3ed2ad8e1fa77d154. This machine currently only works with RT73. See this thread on the forum for more information.
A liveCD/USB download and detailed information is available on this this page.
