Wifi Penetration Testing.
Wifi is maybe one of the best technologies gifted to us. Wi-Fi helps us to upgrade our messy wired devices to a clean, well-organized way.
But as all technologies do, wifi also has some security issues, especially for the public wifi networks. Any intruder can attack our devices by accessing our Wi-Fi networks silently.
We must analyze our wireless network from time to time to prevent hacking attacks. There are a lot of tools already to do wifi penetration testing but the tool we are going to discuss here is a little different from others.
Ehtools. A framework of serious wifi penetration testing tools developed by the entynetproject.
What makes Ehtools framework different from others?
When we go for wifi penetration testing, we have to use different tools for different tasks. That’s becomes very irritating sometimes.
Ehtools just organizes and links the tools used for wifi penetration testing that already exists so that we can control them from one place. Examples of such tools are Aircrack-ng, Airdump-ng, WPS Pixie- Dust, etc.
Let’s see how we can configure Ehtools on the Linux Platform.
Note: You must be logged in as ‘root’ in order to run the tool error-free.
Configuring EhTools on Linux
As most will prefer going with the lite for testing purposes, we are choosing the lite as well.
Now hit enter. At the next step, it will ask you to install the modules. type ‘yes’ and hit enter.
Now you have to set a username and password to protect ehtools from unauthorized access. type ‘yes’ and hit enter.
The last step is creating a config key. Type the key you want to set and hit enter.
Here we go! we have successfully configured the tool.
