Wifislax is a Linux distribution with a set of preinstalled Aircrack-ng
utilities for checking, collecting data and testing WiFi network security. Distributed as an ISO image from which you can burn a bootable flash drive or DVD (for use without installing on a hard disk). Wifislax - multilingual distribution kit, also available in Russian.
Functionality and Features Overview
The following components are integrated into the basic Wifislax:
- metasploit - performs general analysis of wireless networks, shows vulnerabilities present in them (which theoretically can be used for hacking);
- wireshark - software for comprehensive diagnostics of network interfaces (both internal and external, if accessed), and traffic analysis, including from torrent clients;
- hydra - A utility for cracking by generating access keys (direct brute force matching, hash based);
- hashcat - Another tool to recover access keys to files or sites, but with GPU hardware acceleration support or a distributed attack (where several PCs do password brute force).
Wifislax is a derived distribution from Slackware, which means they have identical package managers and the user can download any additional software from the repository if needed. There is also a detailed manual on how to use it in the Live system itself.
