crack a WEP key of an open network without user interven‐ tion




wesside-ng is an auto-magic tool which incorporates a number of tech‐ niques to seamlessly obtain a WEP key in minutes. It first identifies a network, then proceeds to associate with it, obtain PRGA (pseudo random generation algorithm) xor data, determine the network IP scheme, rein‐ ject ARP requests and finally determine the WEP key. All this is done without your intervention.


-h Shows the help screen. -i Wireless interface name. (Mandatory) -n Network IP as in 'who has destination IP (netip) tell source IP (myip)'. Defaults to the source IP on the ARP request which is captured and decrypted. (Optional) -m 'who has destination IP (netip) tell source IP (myip)'. Defaults to the network.123 on the ARP request captured (Optional). -a Source MAC address (Optional) -c Do not crack the key. Simply capture the packets until control-C is hit to stop the program! (Optional) -p Determines the minimum number of bytes of PRGA which is gath‐ ered. Defaults to 128 bytes. (Optional). -v Wireless access point MAC address (Optional). -t For each number of IVs specified, restart the airecrack-ng PTW engine (Optional). It will restart PTW every IVs. -f Allows the highest channel for scanning to be defined. Defaults to channel 11 (Optional).
