At a recent ISSA (Information Systems Security Association) meeting in
Los Angeles, a team of FBI agents demonstrated current WEP-cracking
techniques and broke a 128 bit WEP key in about three minutes. Special
Agent Geoff Bickers ran the Powerpoint presentation and explained the
attack, while the other agents (who did not want to be named or
photographed) did the dirty work of sniffing wireless traffic and
breaking the WEP keys.
This article will be a general overview
of the procedures used by the FBI team. A future article will give
step-by-step instructions on how to replicate the attack. [Privacy Digest: Privacy News (Civil Rights, Encryption, Free Speech, Cryptography)]
