wifi-honey Usage Example

Broadcast the given ESSID (FreeWiFi) on channel 6 (6) using the wireless interface (wlan0):

root@kali:~# wifi-honey FreeWiFi 6 wlan0

Packages and Binaries:

wifi-honey

In the case of WPA/WPA2, by running airodump-ng along side this you also end up capturing the first two packets of the four way handshake and so can attempt to crack the key with either aircrack-ng or coWPAtty.

What this script does is to automate the setup process, it creates five monitor mode interfaces, four are used as APs and the fifth is used for airodump-ng. To make things easier, rather than having five windows all this is done in a screen session which allows you to switch between screens to see what is going on. All sessions are labelled so you know which is which.
