WiFi WPS Attack using Reaver
What is WPS?
WiFi Protected Setup (secure installation), WPS – standard (and the same protocol) of the semi-automatic creation of a wireless WiFi network.
WPS was designed to simplify deployment and connect to WiFi networks.
There are two types of WPS: WPS with a pin code of 8 digits, on the client you need to enter the same code as on the access point, and the WPS button – you need to press a button on the access point and on the client with an interval of less than two minutes, then they will connect together.
Access points that have WPS enabled are vulnerable to a brute-force (brute-force) attack of this PIN.
