hcxtools

Portable solution for capturing wlan traffic and conversion to hashcat formats (recommended by hashcat) and to John the Ripper formats.

hcx stands for:

  • h = hash
  • c = capture, convert and calculate candidates
  • x = different hashtypes

Do not edit, merge or convert pcapng files! This will remove optional comment fields!
Detection of bit errors does not work on cleaned dump files!
Do not use hcxpcapngtool in combination with third party cap/pcap/pcapng cleaning tools (except: tshark and/or Wireshark)!
It is much better to run gzip to compress the files. Wireshark, tshark and hcxpcapngtool will understand this.
Recommended tools to show additional 802.11 fields or to decrypt WiFi traffic: Wireshark and/or tshark
Recommended tool to filter converted hash by several options: hcxhashtool
Recommended tool to get default or standard PSKs: hcxpsktool
Recommended tool to calculate wordlists based on ESSID: hcxeiutool
Recommended tools to retrieve PSK from hash: hashcat, JtR

Do not merge different cap files to a single cap file.
This will lead to unexpected behaviour on ESSID changes
or different link layer types.
To ‎remove unnecessary packets, run tshark:
tshark -r input.cap -R "(wlan.fc.type_subtype == 0x00 || wlan.fc.type_subtype == 0x02 || wlan.fc.type_subtype == 0x04 || wlan.fc.type_subtype == 0x05 || wlan.fc.type_subtype == 0x08 || eapol)" -2 -F pcapng -w output.pcapng
To reduce the size of the cap file, compress it with gzip:
gzip capture.pcapng
