I've got so many queries about installing Aircrack suite on CentOS or Ubuntu. Today I will show you how to install Wi-Fi cracking suite on both CentOS 6.3 and Ubuntu 13.10


Aircrack-ng is an 802.11 WEP and WPA-PSK keys cracking program that can recover keys once enough data packets have been captured. It implements the standard FMS attack along with some optimizations like KoreK attacks, as well as the all-new PTW attack, thus making the attack much faster compared to other WEP cracking tools. In fact, Aircrack-ng is a set of tools for auditing wireless networks.
