The hardware encryption engine of some Wi-Fi NICs have bugs that interfere with our script. So disable hardware encryption by executing: ./ This only needs to be done once. It's recommended to reboot after executing this script. After plugging in your Wi-Fi NIC, use `systool -vm ath9k_htc` or similar to confirm the nohwcript/.. param has been set. We tested this with an a TP-Link TL-WN722N and an Alfa AWUS051NH v2. 2. Create a wpa_supplicant configuration file that can be used to connect to the network. A basic example is: ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant network={{ ssid="testnet" key_mgmt=FT-PSK psk="password" }} Note the use of "FT-PSK". Save it as network.conf or similar. For more info see 3. Try to connect to the network using your platform's wpa_supplicant. This will likely require a command such as: sudo wpa_supplicant -D nl80211 -i wlan0 -c network.conf If this fails, either the AP does not support FT, or you provided the wrong network configuration options in step 1. 4. Use this script as a wrapper over the previous wpa_supplicant command: sudo {name} wpa_supplicant -D nl80211 -i wlan0 -c network.conf This will execute the wpa_supplicant command using the provided parameters, and will add a virtual monitor interface that will perform attack tests. 5. Use wpa_cli to roam to a different AP of the same network. For example: sudo wpa_cli -i wlan0 > status bssid=c4:e9:84:db:fb:7b ssid=testnet ... > scan_results bssid / frequency / signal level / flags / ssid c4:e9:84:db:fb:7b 2412 -21 [WPA2-PSK+FT/PSK-CCMP][ESS] testnet c4:e9:84:1d:a5:bc 2412 -31 [WPA2-PSK+FT/PSK-CCMP][ESS] testnet ... > roam c4:e9:84:1d:a5:bc ... In this example we were connected to AP c4:e9:84:db:fb:7b of testnet (see status command). The scan_results command shows this network also has a second AP with MAC c4:e9:84:1d:a5:bc. We then roam to this second AP. 6. Generate traffic between the AP and client. For example: sudo arping -I wlan0 7. Now look at the output of {name} to see if the AP is vulnerable. 6a. First it should say "Detected FT reassociation frame". Then it will start replaying this frame to try the attack. 6b. The script shows which IVs (= packet numbers) the AP is using when sending data frames. 6c. Message "IV reuse detected (IV=X, seq=Y). AP is vulnerable!" means we confirmed it's vulnerable. !! Be sure to manually check network traces as well, to confirm this script !! is replaying the reassociation request properly, and to manually confirm !! whether there is IV (= packet number) reuse or not. Example output of vulnerable AP: [15:59:24] Replaying Reassociation Request [15:59:25] AP transmitted data using IV=1 (seq=0) [15:59:25] Replaying Reassociation Request [15:59:26] AP transmitted data using IV=1 (seq=0) [15:59:26] IV reuse detected (IV=1, seq=0).
