January 12th 6:30 @ The Hack Factory – WPA Pin Hacking

Written by  on January 4, 2012

Happy new year!

Did anyone get that certain someone a new router or WiFi access point this holiday season?  Chances are that we can break into it if it has the WPA Pin mode.  We are gonna do this DC612 more workshop style.  So what we need from you is 1) Laptop with WiFi (backtrack or linux), 2) Wireless Access Point with “PIN” mode, and a WPA passphrase.  We will work on cracking this until everyone breaks the network keys.  We will also talk about why this is such as bad thing, and how this is yet another flaw that was introduced into WiFi networking.

Location: The Hack Factory (The wonderful local Hacker Space – memberships available!)
The Hack Factory doesn’t have a bar, so bring your own food & beer and remember, there are no maids on the Hack Factory payroll, so you need to clean up after yourself.
