What to do once an AP PW is found?


Recommended Posts

For education purposes, what's generally the next step after an access point's password is cracked?

I'm just confused. I've seen countless posts about how to get 4-way handshakes, crack passwords, etc. but to what end? What can be done with a cracked PW?

The WiFi key is needed to access the WiFi network. This would be the first step in running a Pen Test. If you’re looking for more info on Pen Testing, check out the offensive security web site, for more info on tips and techniques. Also check the Kali Linux website for more tools of the trade.

Also, in the interest of “for educational purposes”, I would remind everyone that cracking networks that you don’t own is considered to be malicious hacking. It can get you into legal trouble.
