Reaver - WPS Cracker
reaver -i <interface> -b <target bssid> -vv
Reaver implements a brute force attack against WiFi Protected Setup which can crack the WPS pin of an access point in a matter of hours and subsequently recover the WPA/WPA2 passphrase. Specifically, Reaver targets the registrar functionality of WPS, which is flawed in that it only takes 11,000 attempts to guess the correct WPS pin in order to become a WPS registrar. Once registred as a registrar with the access point, the access point will give you the WPA passphrase.
-m, --mac=<mac> MAC of the host system (should be resolved automatically) -e, --essid=<ssid> ESSID of the target AP. Unless cloaked, this will be resolved automatically. -c, --channel=<channel> Set the 802.11 channel for the interface (implies -f) -o, --out-file=<file> Send output to a log file [default: stdout] -f, --fixed Disable channel hopping -5, --5ghz Use 5GHz 802.11 channels -v, --verbose Display non-critical warnings (-vv for more) -q, --quiet Only display critical messages -i, --interface=<wlan> Name of the monitor-mode interface to use -b, --bssid=<mac> BSSID of the target AP -p, --pin=<wps pin> Use the specified WPS pin -h, --help Show help
