h4rpy - an automated WPA/WPA2 PSK attack tool

September 7, 2020

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
