Fluxion is a security auditing and social-engineering research tool. It is a remake of linset by vk496 with (hopefully) less bugs and more functionality. The script attempts to retrieve the WPA/WPA2 key from a target access point by means of a social engineering (phishing) attack. It's compatible with the latest release of Kali (rolling). Fluxion's attacks' setup is mostly manual, but experimental auto-mode handles some of the attacks' setup parameters. Read the FAQ before requesting issues.
If you need quick help, fluxion is also avaible on gitter. You can talk with us on Gitter or on Discord.

How it works
- Scan for a target wireless network.
- Launch the
- Capture a handshake (necessary for password verification).
- Spawns a rogue (fake) AP, imitating the original access point.
- Spawns a DNS server, redirecting all requests to the attacker's host running the captive portal.
- Spawns a web server, serving the captive portal which prompts users for their WPA/WPA2 key.
- Spawns a jammer, deauthenticating all clients from original AP and lureing them to the rogue AP.
- All authentication attempts at the captive portal are checked against the handshake file captured earlier.
- The attack will automatically terminate once a correct key has been submitted.
- The key will be logged and clients will be allowed to reconnect to the target access point.

A Linux-based operating system. We recommend Kali Linux 2 or Kali rolling. Kali 2 & rolling support the latest aircrack-ng versions. An external wifi card is recommended.
