wifite – Mass Wifi WEP/WPA Key Cracking Tool

Found this really cool tool through another site.

Cool Stuff:

  • sorts targets by power (in dB); cracks closest access points first
  • automatically deauths clients of hidden networks to decloak SSIDs
  • numerous filters to specify exactly what to attack (wep/wpa/both, above certain signal strengths, channels, etc)
  • customizable settings (timeouts, packets/sec, channel, change mac address, etc)
  • all WPA handshakes are backed up to's current directory
  • smart WPA deauthentication -- cycles between all clients and broadcast deauths
  • stop any attack with Ctrl+C -- options: continue, move onto next target, skip to cracking, or exit
  • switching WEP attack methods does not reset IVs
  • SKA support (untested)
  • displays session summary at exit; shows any cracked keys
  • all passwords saved to log.txt
  • built-in updater: "./ -upgrade" not automatic 
Note: this is for backtrack4

Hope you like it :)
