In a previous chapter, we have seen how to crack WPA/WPA2 PSK using
aircrack-ng. The basic idea was to capture a four-way WPA handshake and then launch a dictionary attack.
The million dollar questions is—would it be possible to crack WPA-Personal with just the client? No access point!
Let's revisit the WPA cracking exercise to jog our memory.
To crack WPA, we need the following four parameters from the Four-Way Handshake—Authenticator Nounce, Supplicant Nounce, Authenticator MAC, Supplicant MAC. Now the interesting thing is that we do not need all of the four packets in the handshake to extract this information. We can ...
