If we have a CentOS 7 desktop and a big wordlist and a WPA out.ivs capture (--ivs with airodump-ng), how can we use hashcat (without installing it via the package manager) to use the wordlist to "attack" the .ivs capture file to guess the password?
Convert the ivs file to hccap:
aircrack-ng out.ivs -J out.hccap
hashcat --words-skip=0 --hash-type=2500 --outfile=cracked.txt --threads=4 out.hccap WORDLIST.txt
I tried the latest aircrack-ng and hashcat on a T450 with an Ubuntu 15 LiveCD. aircrack-ng did ~1700 pw/sec, hashcat did ~1600-1650 pw/sec. Both were using 4 cores, "htop" showd it.
