There are many ways to hack a WIFI network.One of the most preferred methods is to use a WIFI hacking tool. Among the numerous tools present in the market. ‘h4rpy’ is a tool which can automate your hacking skills.
Essentially it is the process of breaking through the security protocols of a WIFI network and gaining full access to monitor and manipulate with that network, which can include unauthorized storing of data, downloading contents etc.
‘H4rpy’ is a WIFI hacking tool or an automated WPA/WPA2 PSK attack tool to be precise. It is a wrapper of aircrack-ng framework.
A good thing about h4rpy is that it provides a clean interface for automated hacking of WPA/WPA2 PSK networks.
It Enables monitor mode on a selected wireless interface, scanning the wireless space for access points. It capture WPA/WPA2 4-way handshake for the access point and starting a dictionary attack on the handshake.
The installation process is really easy even for a newbie; all you have to do is follow the below-mentioned steps.
The first and the foremost thing you should do before beginning the installation process is to ensure that you have the compatible package manager (Debian based distributions).
The installation consists of 4 steps with their description as follows:
- # git clone https://github.com/MS-WEB-BN/h4rpy/->This command will clone the repository from GitHub to your machine.
- # cd h4rpy
-> This command will change the directory to ‘h4rpy’.
- # sudo bash config.sh
-> This command will install dependencies to run h4rpy (aircrack-ng framework and Terminator).
- # sudo chmod +x h4rpy
-> This command will make h4rpy executable by changing its permissions.
# sudo ./h4rpy
This is the command one should use to run the h4rpy through the command line.
Following are the different functions to start with the hacking process.
1. You can enable monitor mode on your choice of wireless interface and scanning for access points (packet capturing of raw 802.11 frames). [Top-left]
2. Packet capturing of the selected wireless network as well as WPA/WPA2
3. Sending disassociate packets to clients which are associated with the selected access point.[Bottom-left]
4. The dictionary attack on the captured WPA/WPA2 4-way handshake. [Bottom-right]
