Before beginning a penetration test against a wireless network, it is important to understand the vulnerabilities associated with Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs).

The 802.11 standard was developed as an "open" standard; in other words, when the standard was written, ease of accessibility and connection were the primary goals.

Security was not a primary concern, and security mechanisms were developed almost as an afterthought.

When security isn't engineered into a solution from the ground up, the security solutions have historically been less than optimal.

When this happens, multiple security mechanisms are often developed, none of which offers a robust solution.

This is very much the case with wireless networks as well.

The 802.15.1 standard (based on Bluetooth technology) was developed as a cable replacement technology.

For the exchange of information between wireless personal area networks (PANs), specifically relating to devices such as mobile phones, laptops, peripherals, and headsets.

Although security was a justifiable concern when developing the standard, vulnerabilities are still associated with Bluetooth devices.

Due to WEP´s vulnerabilities, many public tools have been developed to crack it.

Airsnort is one of the most famous WEP cracking tool available in the market.

Wepcrack is another program to crack WEP.

It uses theoretical attacks into practice, wepcrack consists of a collection of Perl scripts such as

It can collect packets with initialization vectors and save the weak Ivs in a log file called Ivfile log.

Then attackers can simple use the following command to crack WEP protocol.

WEP tools is another program in this series.

Basically all of them do the same, crack the lock and find the WEP key.
