ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. upgrades Wireless Security Auditor, a wireless key recovery solution for Wi-Fi networks, to being a true all-in-one wireless cracking solution. Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor can automatically locate wireless networks, intercept data packets, and crack WPA/WPA2 PSK passwords. Adding the support of AirPCap family Wi-Fi adapters, ElcomSoft Wi-Fi password recovery tool turns any modern laptop with discrete graphics into a mobile wireless security audit system, and provides mobile forensic and law enforcement units with access to protected wireless networks.


The original version of Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor enabled network administrators to perform timed attacks on their wireless networks in order to determine how secure exactly their networks were. In order to operate, it required ready-made dumps or wireless traffic. The dumps could be made with a third-party “sniffer” running under Linux or Windows. The requirement to use a third-party product limited the capabilities and ease of use of Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor.

Integrated Wi-Fi Sniffer

Today, ElcomSoft is integrating a wireless sniffer into Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor. The integrated sniffer turns Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor into a one-button, all-in-one solution ready to be used by corporate security officers without specific experience in information security.

The integrated sniffer is utterly convenient. Displaying all available wireless networks complete with channel numbers, MAC-addresses, SSID, speed, load and encryption parameters, the sniffer connects to a selected Wi-Fi network, and logs wireless traffic complete with “handshake” packets required to starts the password recovery attack.

Laptop-Based Wireless Security Audit

The new built-in sniffer requires the use of a dedicated Wi-Fi adapter, and supports AirPcap family of hot-pluggable wireless USB adapters. By supporting AirPcap wireless USB adapters and including the new sniffer in the package, ElcomSoft makes it possible to turn any modern laptop (*) into a high-end wireless security audit system.

(*) Laptops with ATI or NVIDIA discrete graphics are recommended to enable ElcomSoft GPU acceleration.
