In this “How To: Install Aircrack and Reaver on Ubuntu” article, I will show you what needs to be done in order to install Aircrack and Reaver on Ubuntu 12.04 or later.

The program runs under Linux and Windows; the Linux version is packaged for OpenWrt and has also been ported to the Zaurus and Maemo platforms; and a proof of concept port has been made to the iPhone.
In April 2007 a team at the Darmstadt University of Technology in Germany developed a new attack method based on a paper released on the RC4 cipher by Adi Shamir. This new attack, named ‘PTW’, decreases the number ofinitialization vectors or IVs needed to decrypt a WEP key and has been included in the aircrack-ng suite since the 0.9 release.
Aircrack-ng is a fork of the original Aircrack project.
The aircrack-ng software suite includes:
|aircrack-ng||Cracks WEP and WPA (Dictionary attack) keys.|
|airdecap-ng||Decrypts WEP or WPA encrypted capture files with known key.|
|airmon-ng||Placing different cards in monitor mode.|
|aireplay-ng||Packet injector (Linux, and Windows with CommView drivers).|
|airodump-ng||Packet sniffer: Places air traffic into PCAP or IVS files and shows information about networks.|
|airtun-ng||Virtual tunnel interface creator.|
|packetforge-ng||Create encrypted packets for injection.|
|ivstools||Tools to merge and convert.|
|airbase-ng||Incorporates techniques for attacking client, as opposed to Access Points|
|airdecloak-ng||removes WEP cloaking from pcap files|
|airdriver-ng||Tools for managing wireless drivers|
|airolib-ng||stores and manages ESSID and password lists and compute Pairwise Master Keys|
|airserv-ng||allows you to access the wireless card from other computers.|
|buddy-ng||the helper server for easside-ng, run on a remote computer|
|easside-ng||a tool for communicating to an access point, without the WEP key|
|wesside-ng||automatic tool for recovering wep key.|
System Requirements for Reaver and AirCrack:
a Linux Ubuntu machine .
Install the required Libraries:
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential $ sudo apt-get install libssl-dev
Download the file:
$ tar -zxvf aircrack-ng-1.1.tar.gz $ cd aircrack-ng-1.1
Then, we will edit the file `common.mak` and remove the word “Werror” from line:
"CFLAGS ?= -g -W -Wall -Werror -O3" $ vi common.mak
After editing the file, the line should look like this:
"CFLAGS ?= -g -W -Wall -O3"
Save the file and follow the last steps:
$ make $ sudo make install
In order to update Airodump-ng (Optional). run as ‘root’ or using sudo :
We’ve finished installing Aircrack!
Next step is Reaver installaion, follow the next steps:
Then extract it:
$ tar -xzvf reaver-1.4.tar.gz
Install the required libraries:
$ sudo apt-get install libpcap-dev sqlite3 libsqlite3-dev libpcap0.8-dev
Then Compile and Install it:
$ cd reaver-1.4 $ cd src $./configure ; make $ sudo make install
