The Aircrack-ng SuiteAircrack-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.

6 Jul 2012Trac/Subversion/Forum upI've been working the past week to make sure those services are safe to use and they're now up and running.

You can find more details in the blog.
