In this tutorial we will actually crack a WPA handshake file using dictionary attack. Our tool of choice for this tutorial will be aircrack-ng. We will not bother about the speed of various tools in this post. However, in the next post, we will compare various CPU and GPU algorithms for WPA hash cracking. I'd like to add that I already know the password of the network so I'll simply put it into the dictionary that I'm using.

This is the first time when I read about cracking a WPA handshake file by dictionary attack ^^
