Internet is now the basic necessity of our daily life. Use of smartphones and computers is increasing, most of the devices are now on-line and need to be connected to Internet. So every other house or office now has 1 or 2 Wi-Fi Hotspots available.
People tend to look for free wifi and look for alternate hacking tools to break into peoples wifi networks . But most these networks are secured with a password key. You need to know this security key to access the network. When your own network is down, you will desperately want to connect to these neighbourhood networks. For this, people generally search for wi-fi password cracking tools to get unauthorized access to those wireless networks.
WEP and WPA
WEP and WPA are the two main security protocols used in Wi-Fi LAN. WEP is known as Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP). It is a deprecated security protocol which was introduced back in 1997 as a part of original 802.11 standards. But it was weak, and several serious weakness were found in the protocol. Now, this can be cracked within minutes. So, a new kind of security protocol was introduced in 2003. This new protocol was Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA). It has mainly two versions, 1 and 2 (WPA and WPA2). Now it is the current security protocol used in wireless networks. To get unauthorized access to a network, one needs to crack these security protocols. There are many tools which can crack Wi-Fi encryption. These tools can either take advantage of WEP weaknesses or use bruteforce attacks on WPA/WPA2. I am sure now you know that you should never use WEP security.
There are various hacking tools available, but we are not here to suggest you the hacking tools but to educate you to protect your WiFi networks.
