WEP password crack bash script

WEP is infamously known as the totally broken wireless security protocol. Severe misapplication of cryptographic primitives were discovered in 2001 and after several cascading discoveries afterwards, it’s now possible to crack a WEP protected network in under a minute. WPA is the successor to WEP and features a better but not perfect security protocol.

Cracking of wireless networks is the defeating of security devices in Wireless local-area networks. Wireless local-area networks(WLANs) – also called Wi-Fi networks are inherently vulnerable to security lapses that wired networks are exempt from.

Cracking is a kind of information network attack that is akin to a direct intrusion. There are two basic types of vulnerabilities associated with WLANs: those caused by poor configuration and those caused by weak encryption.
