-This tutorial walks you through cracking WPA/WPA2 networks which use pre-shared keys.  I recommend you do some background reading to better understand what WPA/WPA2 is.  The [[http://aircrack-ng.org|Wiki]] links page has a [[links#wpa_wpa2_information|WPA/WPA2 section]].   The best document describing WPA is [[http://www.hsc.fr/ressources/articles/hakin9_wifi/index.html.en|Wi-Fi Security - WEP, WPA and WPA2]].  This is the [[http://www.hsc.fr/ressources/articles/hakin9_wifi/hakin9_wifi_EN.pdf|link]] to download the PDF directly.  The [[wpa_capture|WPA Packet Capture Explained tutorial]] is a companion to this tutorial. +This tutorial walks you through cracking WPA/WPA2 networks which use pre-shared keys.  I recommend you do some background reading to better understand what WPA/WPA2 is.  The [[http://aircrack-ng.org|Wiki]] links page has a [[links#wpa_wpa2_information|WPA/WPA2 section]].   The best document describing WPA is [[https://web.archive.org/web/20120805090041/http://www.hsc.fr/ressources/articles/hakin9_wifi/index.html.en|Wi-Fi Security - WEP, WPA and WPA2]].  This is the [[https://web.archive.org/web/20120917034330/http://www.hsc.fr/ressources/articles/hakin9_wifi/hakin9_wifi_EN.pdf|link]] to download the PDF directly.  The [[wpa_capture|WPA Packet Capture Explained tutorial]] is a companion to this tutorial. 
  
 WPA/WPA2 supports many types of authentication beyond pre-shared keys.  [[aircrack-ng]] can ONLY crack pre-shared keys.  So make sure [[airodump-ng]] shows the network as having the authentication type of PSK, otherwise, don't bother trying to crack it. WPA/WPA2 supports many types of authentication beyond pre-shared keys.  [[aircrack-ng]] can ONLY crack pre-shared keys.  So make sure [[airodump-ng]] shows the network as having the authentication type of PSK, otherwise, don't bother trying to crack it.
