Description Adrian Alves 2008-08-07 01:22:11 EDT
Spec URL: http://www.proyectofedora.org/repositorio/aircrack-ptw.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.proyectofedora.org/repositorio/aircrack-ptw-1.0.0-1.fc9.src.rpm
Description: We were able to extend Klein's attack and optimize it for usage against WEP.
Using our version, it is possible to recover a 104 bit WEP key with probability
50% using just 40,000 captured packets. For 60,000 available data packets, the
success probability is about 80% and for 85,000 data packets about 95%. Using
active techniques like deauth and ARP re-injection, 40,000 packets can be
captured in less than one minute under good condition.

Comment 3 Till Maas 2008-08-07 15:56:18 EDT
FYI: the code of aircrack-ptw resp. the type of attack has been included in aircrack-ng[1], which is already in Fedora. Aircrack-ptw will not get any updates afaik, because the code is now maintained by aircrack-ng. Btw. I was told that aircrack-ptw is MIT-licensed.

Adrian, given Till's comment #3 , are you still interested in reviewing (and maintaining) this?
