First of all i will tell those who don't know what actually WEP is?
WEP is abbreviation of Wired Equivalency Protocol, but in lay mans terms its a way for you to secure your wireless communication through a method of encryption, usually already built in a wireless device with several options in order to keep neighbours out.
Method for cracking a WEP Or in short terms Breaking Wifi Security:
Here is how it can be done:
1. Run Kismet to find your target network. Get the SSID and the channel.
2. Run Airodump and start capturing data.
3. With Aireplay, start replaying a packet on the target network. (You can find a â€˜good packetâ€™ by looking at the BSSID MAC on Kismet and comparing it to the captured packetâ€™s BSSID MAC).
4. Watch as Airodump goes crazy with new IVs. Thanks to Aireplay.
5. Stop Airodump when you have about 1,000 IVs.
6. Run Aircrack on the captured file.
7. You should see the WEP key infront of you now.
List of programs used:
Kismet is an 802.11 layer2 wireless network detector, sniffer, and intrusion detection system.
It is designed for Linux.
You can download it at KISMET
A windows version can be downloaded at Kismet Windows Version
-Aircrack (Includes Airodump, Aireplay, Aircrack and optional Airdecap for decrypting WEP/WPA capture files)
-Aircrack is the 802.11 WEP and WPA-PSK keys cracking program that can recover this keys once enough encrypted packets have been captured with airodump.
-Airdecap is used to decrypt WEP/WPA capture files.
-Airmon can be used to configure the wireless card.
-Aireplay is used to inject frames.
-Airodump is used for packet capturing of raw 802.11 frames and is particularly suitable for collecting WEP IVs (initialization vectors) for the intent of using them with aircrack-ng.
