Crack a WEP network using Aircrack-ng

Crack a WPA2 network using Aircrack-ng

I cracked WEP and WPA2 networks using Aircrack-ng by comparing a wordlist and capture of WEP and WPA2 networks. This means that if the password of the wireless devices is short and easy to guess, it does not take time to crack the password for an attacker. These countermeasures should be implemented to protect.

· Use complex and lengthy a password

· Rotate a password constantly

· Implement a lockout function when more than three mistakes happened.

· Implement WPA2 Enterprise and have MFA enabled to avoid a dictionary attack.
