Lab-Project 15: WPA/WPA2 Decryption What you need Any computer with Wireshark can do the first part of this project. The second part may require special hardware. Purpose To understand the way WPA-PSK networks isolate users from one another, and defeat that protection. This is the same for WPA2-PSK. If you go to a wireless network and capture frames in Monitor mode, you see traffic from other users, but you can't decrypt it because each user has a different encryption key. However, the process of assigning that key uses a four-way EAPOL handshake, which can be captured. If you capture the EAPOL packets, Wireshark can determine that user's key and decrypt the traffic. Installing Wireshark If you don't already have Wireshark, get it here: Task 1: Analyzing an Existing Packet Capture File Downloading the PCAP File Right-click the link below and save the file somewhere you can find it, such as your desktop: -

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
