Accelerating wireless network security audits
ElcomSoft announced the availability of GPU-accelerated version of Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor 1.0, a product to audit wireless network security by attempting to recover the original WPA/WPA2 PSK password of a Wi-Fi network. The new-generation GPU acceleration algorithms speed up the recovery several hundred times when compatible ATI or NVIDIA video cards are installed.
Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor allows system administrators to determine exactly how secure a wireless network is by attempting to recover the original WPA/WPA2 password performing series of advanced dictionary attacks. If a wireless network cannot withstand attacks performed by Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor armed with one or more inexpensive video accelerators, the entire Wi-Fi network cannot be considered secure.
Featuring the latest generation of ElcomSoft’s state-of-the-art GPU acceleration technologies allows speeding up the recovery several hundred times depending on exact system configuration. In addition to compatible ATI and NVIDIA cards, Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor supports industrial-grade NVIDIA Quadro accelerators and Tesla desktop supercomputers.
Advanced dictionary attacks with deep mutations attempt multiple variants and combinations of each dictionary word. The mutations can be fine-tuned to employ all or some of the settings such as different letter cases, number substitutions, changing the order of characters, using abbreviations and vowel mutations; 12 configurable mutation settings altogether.
Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor offers a fast, cost-efficient solution to carry out an audit of a wireless network environment. Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor employs the most effective dictionary attacks and allows carrying out a password audit within a limited timeframe.
