Aircrack-ng is a complete suite of tools to assess WiFi network security for your Windows PC. You should always start by confirming that your wireless card can inject packets. This can be done by using the injection test. Enjoy!

It focuses on different areas of WiFi security:

  • Monitoring: Packet capture and export of data to text files for further processing by third-party tools
  • Attacking: Replay attacks, deauthentication, fake access points, and others via packet injection
  • Testing: Checking WiFi cards and driver capabilities (capture and injection)
  • Cracking: WEP and WPA PSK (WPA 1 and 2)

All tools are command line which allows for heavy scripting. A lot of GUIs have taken advantage of this feature. It works primarily Linux but also Windows, macOS, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, as well as Solaris and even eComStation 2.

The basic process consists of three steps:

  • Determine the chipset in your wireless card
  • Determine which of the three options you will use to run the Aircrack-ng suite
  • Get started using the Aircrack-ng suite
