How to Create a Wordlist for WPA Cracking in Algeria
WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) is a security protocol that protects wireless networks from unauthorized access. However, it is not immune to brute-force attacks, which try to guess the password by trying different combinations of characters.
To perform a brute-force attack on WPA, you need a wordlist, which is a file that contains a large number of possible passwords. The wordlist should be customized to the target network, taking into account factors such as language, location, culture, etc.
In this article, we will show you how to create a wordlist for WPA cracking in Algeria, using a tool called Crunch. Crunch is a command-line tool that can generate wordlists based on various criteria, such as character set, length, pattern, etc.
Step 1: Install Crunch
Crunch is available for Linux and Windows. To install it on Linux, you can use the following command:
sudo apt-get install crunch
To install it on Windows, you can download the zip file from here and extract it to a folder of your choice.
Step 2: Define the Character Set
The first parameter that you need to specify for Crunch is the character set, which is the set of characters that will be used to generate the wordlist. You can use the -f option to choose from some predefined character sets, such as loweralpha (lowercase letters), upperalpha (uppercase letters), numeric (numbers), etc.
For example, if you want to use lowercase letters and numbers, you can use the following command:
crunch 8 8 -f charset.lst loweralpha-numeric
This will generate a wordlist with 8 characters long passwords, using lowercase letters and numbers.
However, since we are targeting an Algerian network, we might want to include some characters that are specific to the Arabic and French languages, such as Ã, Ã, Ã , Ã, etc. To do this, we can use the -t option to define a pattern that includes these characters.
For example, if we want to generate a wordlist with 8 characters long passwords, where the first two characters are lowercase letters from the Arabic alphabet (a-z), the third character is either Ã or Ã, the fourth character is either Ã or Ã, and the last four characters are numbers (0-9), we can use the following command:
This will save the wordlist to a file called wordlist.txt in the current directory.
Step 4: Use the Wordlist for WPA Cracking
Once you have created your wordlist, you can use it for WPA cracking with tools such as Aircrack-ng or Hashcat. For example, if you have captured a WPA handshake in a file called handshake.cap and you want to use Aircrack-ng to crack it with your wordlist.txt file, you can use the following command:
aircrack-ng -w wordlist.txt handshake.cap
This will try to find the password by comparing the handshake with each password in the wordlist. If it finds a match, it will display it on the screen.
