Welcome to the ultimate WiFi penetration testing cheatsheet

Welcome to the ultimate WiFi penetration testing cheatsheet, an indispensable resource for every ethical hacker. This comprehensive guide will test WiFi encryption standards, including WEP, WPA, PMKID, ARP Request Replay Attacks, WPS PIN, HITRE attacks, and the Evil Twin method. We’ll also introduce you to popular automated tools and provide valuable links for further learning.

It’s important to note that this cheatsheet assumes that you have installed the Kali operating system and are proficient in using Linux-based tools. Additionally, you will need a WiFi adapter capable of packet injection. Some standard network adapters support packet injection: Alfa AWUS036ACH, TP-Link TL-WN722N, Alfa AWUS036NHA, Alfa AWUS036H, and NETGEAR A6210-100PES. However, compatibility may vary depending on the operating system and driver support. Moreover, this list is not exhaustive; other network adapters may also support packet injection.
