Fluxion Description

Fluxion is a security auditing and social-engineering research tool. It is a remake of linset by vk496 with (hopefully) less bugs and more functionality. The script attempts to retrieve the WPA/WPA2 key from a target access point by means of a social engineering (phishing) attack. It's compatible with the latest release of Kali (rolling). Fluxion's attacks' setup is mostly manual, but experimental auto-mode handles some of the attacks' setup parameters. 

How it works

  • Scan for a target wireless network.
  • Launch the Handshake Snooper attack.
  • Capture a handshake (necessary for password verification).
  • Launch Captive Portal attack.
  • Spawns a rogue (fake) AP, imitating the original access point.
  • Spawns a DNS server, redirecting all requests to the attacker's host running the captive portal.
  • Spawns a web server, serving the captive portal which prompts users for their WPA/WPA2 key.
  • Spawns a jammer, deauthenticating all clients from original AP and lureing them to the rogue AP.
  • All authentication attempts at the captive portal are checked against the handshake file captured earlier.
  • The attack will automatically terminate once a correct key has been submitted.
  • The key will be logged and clients will be allowed to reconnect to the target access point.

         -m     Run fluxion in manual mode instead of auto mode.

         -k     Kill wireless connection if it is connected.

         -d     Run fluxion in debug mode.

         -x     Try to run fluxion with xterm terminals instead of tmux.

         -r     Reload driver.

         -l <language>
                Define a certain language.

         -e <essid>
                Select the target network based on the ESSID.

         -c <channel>
                Indicate the channel(s) to listen to.

         -a <attack>
                Define a certain attack.

         --ratio <ratio>
                Define the windows size. Bigger ratio ->  smaller  window  size.
                Default is 4.

         -b <bssid>
                Select the target network based on the access point MAC address.

         -j <jamming interface>
                Define a certain jamming interface.

         -a <access point interface>
                Define a certain access point interface.


                The system wide tmp directory.
                Folder where handshakes and passwords are stored in.


                Automatically run fluxion in auto mode if exported.

                Automatically run fluxion in debug mode if exported.

                Automatically kill any interfering process(es).


A Linux-based operating system. We recommend Kali Linux 2 or Kali rolling. Kali 2 & rolling support the latest aircrack-ng versions. An external wifi adapter is recommended.
