How To Capture Handshakes In Kali Linux

Welcome to Hacking Dream. Today I am going to show you how to capture handshakes through Kali Linux, there are many complicated methods using Terminal to capture HandShakes but here I will explain - capturing handshakes using a very simple method, you can capture handshakes using this method and can use that file to hack wifi password in aircrack-ng easily 


What are these Handshakes and What is it for:

·         Here I will just show you only capturing handshakes and in my later posts I will explain you how to hack wifi using handshakes
·         Handshakes are the data or packets gathered by the kali linux (or the software that we use)
·         These Handshakes are used to Use a “BRUTE FORCE ATTACK” or “DICTIONARY ATTACK” in order to check the password in the wordlist


1.   Kali Linux – Operation System In Your System Or In Your Flash Disk (USB Pen drive)
2.   4GB or Above Pen drive
3.   Kali Live Boot

                                   How To Capture Handshakes In Kali Linux

Step 1: Open Your Terminal And Type “Ifconfig ’’ And Press Enter to check your Interface status 

 Step 2: Here I will be selecting wlan0  as my interface
             And the Next Command Is  “airmon-ng start wlan0”

Now You can see all the available supplicants and kill them
By Using Kill Command

Ex; Kill PID_Number == Kill 3081
                                      Kill 3188

Now Open New Terminal

And Type “wifite”

Wifite Starts Running

Now select the wifi network that you want to hack, here as I am going to show you how to capture Handshakes, I will select wpa2 or wpa, you can select any network that you wish to hack

Now press “Control +C”  to stop the search and I selected the first network
You can select as many networks as you want, just by adding “,” in between them For now as  I have only wpa2 networks available I will use wpa2 only, you  can use what ever you like 

 select a Network and Press Enter First Capturing Handshake Starts and then the hack starts, as for example i will stop it right after it captures handshake

That’s it Handshake had been captured, This wpa2 attack cannot be successful as there is no dictionary in it. If the network is Wpa/Wpa2 - WPS Enabled - Wifite would have tried to hack without using Wordlist that is same as reaver method. 

The Handshake File which Wifite created earlier will be saved in  “Home Folder ”

 And In It You Can Find A Folder Named "hs" open it, There you can find you handshake file 

Now as Capturing Handshake is Done, all you need to do is hack it, we can use aircrack-ng to crack handshake file using wordlist, here is the tutorial to hack wifi password using Handshake and Wordlist In aircrack-ng in Kali Linux

==========     Hacking Don't Need Agreements     ==========
Just Remember One Thing You Don't Need To Seek Anyone's  To Hack Anything Or Anyone As Long As It Is Ethical, This Is The Main Principle Of Hacking Dream
