Paper Title

Attacking WPA/WPA2 in the Cloud


WPA/WPA2 cracking primarily consists of dictionary based attacks. Dictionary attacks are just as good as the wordlist one has and the availability of sufficient compute power to iterate through it. A few years back it was unimaginable how one could launch a dictionary attack which tries a billion combinations within a practical timeframe but now with the advent of Cloud Computing, compute resource is no longer a prized commodity. In this talk will explore how to use different cloud services to crack WPA/WPA2 Personal and Enterprise!
