WPA broken PACSEC 2008 + Aircrack-PTW

WPA security broken Security conference PACSEC 2008 that will be held in japanese Tokyo on 12th and 13th November 2008 has a great attraction. There will be presented a security research from Mark Tew as a next (not brute force), new implementation of the WPA-TKIP attack. WPA-TKIP security based on the dynamic key generation was supposed to be by laicks and professionals as unbreakable. Much more safe then funny WEP encription. 

According to the references Mark Tew and Martin Beck will present a way how to pass TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol).

That is know as the one that uses a dynamic key generation for each of data block.

Paper say.. the time needed for successful WPA cracking is 12 to 15 minutes!

So don’t forget to check fresh materials from the PACSEC 2008 conference website or another internet sources.

The details form the WPA broken Pacsec 2008 conference will be published also here at Remote Security website, probably in the new topic or in the news.

It was released a better and faster implemantation for breaking WEP secutiry known as Aircrack-PTW. New minimum of the IV’s neede for successful 128 bit key recovery is 19 000 IV. Source code available at SVN. All tools are at your disposal at rootu. The implementaion is of course in the latest SVN version Aircrack-NG.
