    Default WPA script

    I have been trying to crack my wpa that my wife set up 4 me so no cheating. I have downloaded several dictionaries but no luck. My question is, is there a program that that searches each character 1 at a time until it finds the letter or symbol and then moves to the next character 1-64 and so on instead of using pre-determined words, just find 1 character at a time until the password is found? I hope you understand what I'm trying to say I sometimes confuse myself. Thank you 4 your help.

    just think about it for a second,

    read the specifications on wpa, and general encryption to see how it all works

    you may want to try to compose your own word list since she's your wife, and you probably know ALOT about her. if you know any of her past passwords, you can guess what style she uses (easy names of things. anograms, or randome characters). remeber the social engeneering aspect to. she's your wife, you maybe able to get her guard down and drop hints about the password. and lastly remember this isnt the movies, so prettymuch anything you've seen on tv and how cracking passwords works is BS. good luck

    No. Encryption/decryption doesn't work like that. What you're describing is a Hollywood special effect. It looks better on TV than real life, where someone waits for a whole string to pop up, or in your case, not pop up.

    In actuality, the encryption acts on the passphase and SSID as a whole, so it has to be decrypted as a whole.

    Well thank you all for your help. I just thought my idea of 1 character at a time would be eaiser than 64 ish.

    Sounds like something a wife would do.
    Luckily mine gets computers as much as I get the human genome mapping.
    There's two peaces of advice I can give you:

    1.Raise the white flag and save yourself from loosing those shreds of dignity you got left.
    2. If the first option is just not acceptable you can always send an e-mail to Martin Beck and Erik Tews telling them to stop f-ing around and finish tkiptun-ng (I-m sure that if you properly state your case they will be most understanding)

    In any case I wish you the best of luck!

    Nope, it just doesn't work that way. I wish it did, because then real life would be more like an action movie.

    If your wife used a truly random passphrase that mixes alpha-numeric and other characters, and is one the order of 12 or more characters in length, there is a very high probability it cannot be broken. If she used a real word, or a real word(s) in some combination with other characters (like your name with her name and your anniversary date as a suffix), then you may be able to make some educated guesses it as cgkades suggested and put those combinations in a custom dictionary.

    Good luck with it.

    You need to move down here, every day is just like an action movie.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    I bet the "car" chases are much more interesting on horse and buggy.
