h4rpy provides a clean interface for automated cracking of WPA/WPA2 PSK networks. h4rpy enables monitor mode on a selected wireless interface, scans the wireless space for access points, tries to capture WPA/WPA2 4-way handshake for the access point, and starts a dictionary attack on the handshake. It is also possible to send disassociate packets to clients associated with the access point.
The installation consists of cloning the repo, running a script that will install dependencies (aircrack-ng framework and Terminator are required in order to run h4rpy), and making h4rpy executable. The script only works with an apt package manager (Debian based distributions).
# git clone https://github.com/MS-WEB-BN/h4rpy/ # cd h4rpy # sudo bash config.sh # sudo chmod +x h4rpy
To run h4rpy:
# sudo ./h4rpy

The software is free to use, modify, and distribute, as long as the credit is given to the creator (n1x_ [MS-WEB]).

- Hakin9 is a monthly magazine dedicated to hacking and cybersecurity. In every edition, we try to focus on different approaches to show various techniques - defensive and offensive. This knowledge will help you understand how most popular attacks are performed and how to protect your data from them. Our tutorials, case studies and online courses will prepare you for the upcoming, potential threats in the cyber security world. We collaborate with many individuals and universities and public institutions, but also with companies such as Xento Systems, CATO Networks, EY, CIPHER Intelligence LAB, redBorder, TSG, and others.
