Quick and Simple WiFi Testing with besside-ng
I’ve been using Bettercap for a while now, and i love it but i saw a post on the weekend that reminded me the value in going back to look at other tools.
It was this one about besside-ng.
If you had no concern about stealth, it’s as simple as:
- Make sure your wireless card is connected and available:
sudo iwconfigshould do it.
- Start a capture:
sudo besside-ng wlan0 -vv
besside-ng will hop channels and attempt deauth attacks on everything it finds automatically.
It can even be configured to send the .cap files for cracking on a remote service as it captures them.
If you’d like to just pass the captures through a simple word-list on your testing machine you could use:
sudo aircrack-ng wpa.cap -w rockyou.txt
(The Alfa AWUS036H is one of the cards you can find relatively cheap that wont give you any trouble with wifi analysis tools).
