Pyrit Description

Pyrit allows you to create massive databases of pre-computed WPA/WPA2-PSK authentication phase in a space-time-tradeoff. By using the computational power of Multi-Core CPUs and other platforms through ATI-Stream,Nvidia CUDA and OpenCL, it is currently by far the most powerful attack against one of the world’s most used security-protocols.

Pyrit Usage Example

The benchmark option computes and displays your systems cracking speed:

pyrit benchmark
Pyrit 0.5.1 (C) 2008-2011 Lukas Lueg - 2015 John Mora

Running benchmark (1353.0 PMKs/s)... /

Computed 1352.97 PMKs/s total.
#1: 'CPU-Core (SSE2/AES)': 464.7 PMKs/s (RTT 2.9)
#2: 'CPU-Core (SSE2/AES)': 91.4 PMKs/s (RTT 10.3)
#3: 'CPU-Core (SSE2/AES)': 742.3 PMKs/s (RTT 2.5)
#4: 'CPU-Core (SSE2/AES)': 498.4 PMKs/s (RTT 3.6)

Read a capture file (/usr/share/doc/aircrack-ng/examples/wpa2.eapol.cap) and analyze it (analyze):

pyrit -r /usr/share/doc/aircrack-ng/examples/wpa2.eapol.cap analyze
Pyrit 0.5.1 (C) 2008-2011 Lukas Lueg - 2015 John Mora

    #1: HMAC_SHA1_AES, good, spread 1

Create an ESSID (create_essid), specifying the name found in the above analysis (-e Harkonen):

pyrit -e Harkonen create_essid

Created ESSID 'Harkonen'

Read a password file (-i /usr/share/wordlists/metasploit/password.lst) and import them into the database (import_passwords):

pyrit -i /usr/share/wordlists/metasploit/password.lst import_passwords

Working on ESSID 'Harkonen'
Processed all workunits for ESSID 'Harkonen'; 1756 PMKs per second.

Batchprocessing done.

Read the capture file (-r /usr/share/doc/aircrack-ng/examples/wpa2.eapol.cap) and attempt to crack the password (attack_db).

pyrit -r /usr/share/doc/aircrack-ng/examples/wpa2.eapol.cap attack_db
