Aircrack-ng

Looking around for updated tools and found that Aircrack-ng has a Newbie Guide in progress. And, since there was not a specific post for this tool, I thought I would add it.

A little info:

aircrack is an 802.11 WEP and WPA-PSK keys cracking program that can recover keys once enough data packets have been captured. It implements the standard FMS attack along with some optimizations like KoreK attacks, thus making the attack much faster compared to other WEP cracking tools. In fact aircrack is a set of tools for auditing wireless networks.

Aircrack-ng is the next generation of aircrack with lots of new features (planned and wanted).
