After using my trusted raspberry pi for a little over 2 years, I was in need of an upgrade. In the beginning my goal was just to make a home firewall/server using PFsense, but then I added an extra requirement, it had to use as little energy as possible. My top priority was getting a system that…
Automate wifi hacking using the Raspberry Pi recap
Its been a while since the last post, so I thought it would be nice with a small recap of what we have been doing and also to make it easier to navigate the posts. The goal with this project is to automate wifi hacking using the Raspberry Pi
This is the systems current state.
The Raspberry Pi is configured with a Linux distribution called PwnPi. The project started with the premise of using a arm version of Kali Linux, but then I found PwnPi and since it had the drivers for the wireless adapter already in the kernel, it made the whole process a lot easier.
I used a lot of time trying to find information on the drivers for the wireless adapter, if you want to use Kali instead of PwnPi, then I suggest you take a look at the blog posts about my attempt with Kali Linux
- Installing Kali Linux on Raspberry PI
- Testing networking on Kali Linux
- Installing the ath9k driver for Kali Linux
After the installation, we proceeded with the necessary steps to configure the system and install the required programs. Such as aircrack-ng and Reaver, next we needed a way to automate the hacking part of the project.
I then found a script on Github called Wifite. This script takes certain parameters and can be configured so it doesn’t require any human interaction to do its job. I will continue with this project and add new updates as the project takes form.
