Guide to wifi hacking using Wifite

Disclaimer: What you do with this information is up to you. You are fully responsible for what you do with this info, and how you use it. HackMethod is not responsible for your actions. Please do not hack Wifi points that you are not allowed to.

NOTE: I do advise having a USB WiFi adapter, and an extra point would be to get a great one like the ALFA AWUS036NHR or AWUS051NH. Although any card would do as long as it supports monitor mode and packet injection.

Using LUKS

Linux Unified Key Setup, or LUKS [luhks] as it will be referred to as from here on out, is a widely used method of disk-encryption.  LUKS is proprietary to the Linux Kernel and a device encrypted with LUKS will not mount in a Windows or Apple environment.  LUKS can encrypt entire block devices such as Hard Disks Drives (HDD), Solid-State Devices (SSD) such as USB sticks or Flash drives, partitions, etc.  LUKS is largely recommended for protecting removable storage media, laptop hard-disks or Linux swap files and not recommended for file level encryption.
