How To Crack WEP WiFi In Mac OS X With Aircrack MacOSX
Thanks for the info really useful stuff. Really appreciate it.I have one question and still, you have answered previously in the comments here but I am a bit confused.aircrack-ng -1 -a 1 -b -wI know what to use for:BSSID and cap_fileWhat do I need to use for ?

This manual show a manual to crack WiFi password from my MacBook Pro with MacOS 10.13 (HighSierra).I want to save the instruction to the future. If you want to repeat it you should familiar with console terminal.
There is a list on the website of aircrack-ng, and I think the Alfa AWUS051NH v2 is great.Some people say it is expensive, but last time I checked on Google Shopping, it cost less than half an Apple mouse.
Wireless networks are common in enterprise environments, making them a prime target for penetration testers. Additionally, misconfigured wireless networks can be easily cracked, providing penetration testers with a great deal of valuable information about the network and its users. This article explores some of the most widely-used tools for different aspects of wireless network hacking.
For Wi-Fi networks with one of about 1,000 of the most common and default SSIDs, CoWPAtty offers a rainbow table of 172,000 password hashes. If a particular Wi-Fi network uses one of these SSIDs and has a password in the list, then CoWPAtty can crack it much more quickly.
Pyrit is more useful in the long run, as you have only to compute the keys once, then compare them with the captured handshake in your pcap files. With hashcat, you can get to cracking and comparing at the same time without the need to precompute everything and then compare it.
I strongly recommend you not to pipe the result of crunch into aircrack directly if you got time and/or not much process power, try to output crunch passwords into a file and input that into aircrack in two different commands
Regarding the "better/faster method (than crunch) to generate all possible permutations?", that is not the bottleneck of the cracking, writing permutations isn't that process-exhaustive, it's the WPA encryption, you can do a space-time trade-off explained by Nicholas Dechert answer on creating the pre-computation with the SSID of the WPA, that will boost your time amazingly.
Wireless hacking tools are the software programs specifically designed to hack wireless networks by either leveraging dictionary attacks for cracking WEP/WPA protected wireless networks or exploiting susceptibilities in wifi systems.
Hacking or gaining unauthorized access to wireless networks is an illegal act, an activity not encouraged. These wireless hacking tools deploy various techniques to crack wifi networks such as sidejacking, brute force attacks, dictionary attacks, evil twin, encryption, and Man-In-the-Middle Attacks.
Aircrack-ng is one of the most popular suites of tools that can be used to monitor, attack, test, and crack WiFi networks. It is compatible with Windows, Linux, OS X and is a command-line tool. It can be used for attacking and cracking WPA and WEP. The attaching mechanism is simple. It monitors and collects packets, once enough packets are captured; it tries to recover the password.
Cloudcracker is a cloud-based solution for cracking the passwords of various utilities. The tool uses dictionary-based attacks to crack the passwords. The size of the dictionary ranges up to 10 digits. Just upload the handshake file along with a few other details and you are all set.
Enter weakness number two: even if you're not on a network, you can still send packets to the router. By spoofing the MAC address of a device that's already connected to the network, you can confuse the router by grabbing a packet, duplicating it, and sending a flood of these duplicate packets "from" a device on the target computer (actually sent from your computer). The router will then respond to that flood of packets with a flood of its own response packets. Since all of these packets are all encrypted, you've just tricked the router into giving you a much faster source of encrypted packets with which to crack the WEP passphrase.
This spoofs packets to look like they're coming from AB:BC:CD:DE:EF and sends them to AA:BB:CC:DD:EE. It then floods the router with these fake packets, and forces the router to respond with its own flood of packets, giving Aircrack more information to work with when trying to crack the passphrase.
