It is now possible to break the party encryption standard WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access - see our article on the Safety of WI-FI - http link internal url: [click]) which is currently used by many point wireless access, it would be possible to send false information from this access point to a remote computer with this new attack.
The details of the attack are not yet publicly known, however, Erik Tews and Martin Beck had planned to carry out a "Gone in 900 seconds, Some Issues with Crypto WPA" on this matter at the next conference PacSec (external link http url : [Click]) to be held in Tokyo next week.
In this presentation, the two researchers demonstrate how it should be possible to visualize data traffic from a wireless access point to a remote computer, and not vice versa, using an encrypted WI-FI with the WPA.
According Dragos Ruiu, the conference organizer PacSec as conferences EuSecWest (external link http url: [click]), CanSecWest (external link http url: [click]) and BA-Con (external link http url: [click ]) Is especially key TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol - see our article on the Safety of WI-FI - http link internal url: [click]) could be broken in less than fifteen minutes, however, would be here "and" the relative safety data exchanged from the access point would be to consider and not on data from the remote computer to it.
The key to decrypt the data from the remote computer to the access point they have about anyway "not yet" been broken where the partial aspect of this new attack would nonetheless step forward in terms of breaking encryption for a future compromise total.
In addition, some codes related to this new attack had already been included so quiet in the latest version of the tool Aircrack-ng (external link http url: [click]), one of the presenter, Martin Beck, making from the development team for this project.
On the site of Aircrack-ng, you can now find the new utility in question (Tkiptun-ng - external link http url: [click]), which is only available on the CVS version (installation instructions - http link External url: [click]).
