 The Cafe Latte attack allows you to obtain a WEP key from a client system.  Briefly, this is done by capturing an ARP packet from the client, manipulating it and then send it back to the client.  The client in turn generates packets which can be captured by [[airodump-ng]].   Subsequently, [[aircrack-ng]] can be used to determine the WEP key. The Cafe Latte attack allows you to obtain a WEP key from a client system.  Briefly, this is done by capturing an ARP packet from the client, manipulating it and then send it back to the client.  The client in turn generates packets which can be captured by [[airodump-ng]].   Subsequently, [[aircrack-ng]] can be used to determine the WEP key.
