  Description     : wireless WEP/WPA cracking utilities

aircrack-ng is an 802.11a/b/g WEP/WPA cracking program that can recover a
40-bit, 104-bit, 256-bit or 512-bit WEP key once enough encrypted packets
have been gathered. Also it can attack WPA1/2 networks with some advanced
methods or simply by brute force.

It implements the standard FMS attack along with some optimizations,
thus making the attack much faster compared to other WEP cracking tools.
It can also fully use a multiprocessor system to its full power in order
to speed up the cracking process.

aircrack-ng is a fork of aircrack, as that project has been stopped by
the upstream maintainer.


aircrack-ng has been removed from Debian because it was unmaintained and had
unresolved license problems that now are fixed upstream.

My intention is to reintroduce aircrack-ng in Debian by packaging a new
version which fixes the license problems (#588588)
