denartha Posted January 1, 2013 Share Posted January 1, 2013 Obviously, nowadays cracking WEP is trivial, and recently I ran into luck, I got the right ARP packet and was able to replay it and within minutes I had about 45,000 initialisation vectors, and got the key instantly, but it can happen, on a quiet network, that you are sniffing for a long time before you get the right packet. The basic concept of the Pineapple, or the Jassager software it runs is, Client(phone, laptop, etc) says to Pineapple, "Are you my preferred network?", the Pineapple replies "Sure am!", the client says "Ok here is my WEP key, am I authenticated?", and the pineapple says, "You sure are!", and the handshake is over with the client connected. Is there a way to capture the WEP key the client supplies? If so, it could be a very nice way of gathering all the WEP keys around you, quickly and easily. Thanks!
