Cracking WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) Crack any WPA/WPA2/WEP

WPS is short for Wi-Fi Protected System. Most of the Wireless routers have WPS enabled by default. In WPS cracking attacker will try to brute force WPS Pin which in turn can reveal WPA/WPA2/WEP Network Key in plain text.

1. Reaver is the best tool available to brute force WPS in order to retrieve WPS PIN
2. Using WPS Pin attacker can extract plain text password for WEP/WPA/WPA2 encryptions.

Brute Force WPS Pin using reaver :

Reaver extracting Plain text passwords for WPA PSK:

Some of AP's have rate limiting feature where WPS brute force process will be slowed down.
Reaver still will be successful in cracking WPS pin.

This was short introduction to WPS Cracking, and will add more info soon.

To Be Continued ..
