Broadcasting WPA encrypted networks


Recommended Posts


I'm interested in mounting an attack where I already know the passphrase of a WPA/WPA2 encrypted network, then try to impersonate it.

I've tried modifiying the /etc/config/wireless file, but I don't really understand when the PineAP links the list of SSIDs to interfaces.

I already know that I have to modify an interface by adding  :

  •        option encryption 'psk2+ccmp'
  •         option ssid 'MySSID'
  •         option key 'MyKey'

but it looks like modifying existing entries in this files has no effect on the broadcasted SSIDs by PineAP.

Could someone help me? Many thanks.

So you're approaching an existing network... Launching a SSID with the same name / security setup / password, while I assume deauthing the target router in hopes that you'll redirect connected devices to your secure network ?

That would work, yeah.
