Wi-Fi tools keep getting more and more accessible to beginners, and the Ehtools Framework is a framework of serious penetration tools that can be explored easily from within it. This powerful and simple tool can be used for everything from installing new add-ons to grabbing a WPA handshake in a matter of seconds. Plus, it's easy to install, set up, and utilize.
How to install ehtools
chmod +x install.sh
Selecting version of framework
INFO: After executing install.sh it will be ask you to select version of Ehtools Framework - PRO os LITE. Select LITE if you did not buy Ehtools Framework PRO. If you bought Ehtools Framework PRO, select PRO.
What version of Ehtools Framework do you want to install?(pro/lite):
If you did not buy Ehtools Framework PRO, select LITE!
If you bought Ehtools Framework PRO, select PRO!
If you select Ehtools Framework PRO, you will need to activate it with your Ehtools Activation Key that you need to bought on the ehtools site. If you have Ehtools Activation Key, read the following instructions.
How to activate ehtools PRO
This key you can buy on the ehtools site for one dollar! This key is used to activate ehtools PRO enter it in the input field of the activation key in the file install.sh and then you can install ehtools and use it only for educational purposes!
WARNING: The key works only one week then it changes!
You need to have time to enter it before it is updated!
./install.shEnter your ehtools activation key! You can buy it on the ehtools site!
(activation_key)>Also, we do not recommend to change the source code of ehtools because it is very complex and you can mess up something and disrupt the framework!
WARNING: We do not recommend to change ehtools source code
because you can disrupt framework!
How to uninstall ehtools
ehtools -rWARNING: Do not do it if you want to reinstall
ehtools PRO which you bought, do not do it because
you will need to buy it one more time!
Most new Wi-Fi hacking tools rely on many of the same underlying attacks, and scripts that automate using other more familiar tools like Aireplay-ng are often referred to as frameworks. These frameworks try to organize tools in smart or useful ways to take them a step beyond the functionality or usability of the original program.
An excellent example of this are programs that integrate scanning tools like Airodump-ng, attacks like WPS Pixie-Dust, and cracking tools like Aircrack-ng to create an easy-to-follow attack chain for beginners. Doing this makes the process of using these tools easier to remember and can be seen as sort of a guided tour. While each of these attacks is possible without the hand-holding, the result can be faster or more convenient than trying to do so yourself.
An example of this we've covered is the Airgeddonframework, a wireless attack framework that does useful things like automating the target selection process and eliminating the time a user spends copying and pasting information between programs. This saves valuable time for even experienced pentesters but has the disadvantage of preventing beginners from understanding what's happening "under the hood" of the attack. While this is true, most of these frameworks are fast, efficient, and dead simple to use, enabling even beginners to take on and disable an entire network.
UX/UI impruvements for beginners
The Ehtools Framework starts by merely typing the letter ehtools or eht into a terminal window, then it asks for the name of your network interfaces after the first run. It uses the names you supply to connect to the tools needed to execute any attacks you select. Aside from that initial input, the majority of the possible attacks can be performed merely by choosing the option number from the menu. This means you can grab a network handshake or download a new hacking tool like Pupy by just selecting from one of the menu options.
Use basic networking tools
To begin, we can access data about the network we're currently connected to, as well as any network interfaces, from the main menu. Here, we can find local information by just typing l to pull up local IP information, as seen below.
This allows us to do things like scan the network for other devices. This part of Ehtools Framework gives us better visibility on a network and situational awareness of what devices are around us. The various information can be broken down as follows:
(ehtools)> ifINFO: Runs ifconfig and gives the names and information about all network devices.
(ehtools)> 1INFO: Enable wlan0.
(d1 disables it)
(ehtools)> 2INFO: Enable wlan0mon.
(d2 disables it)
(ehtools)> 3INFO: Randomize or set the MAC address to a specific value.
(ehtools)> 7INFO: View the public IP address your computer is leaving on sites you visit.
(ehtools)> 19INFO: Look up the physical address of a given IP address to determine it's relative location.
(ehtools)> scanINFO: Start an ARP scan on the network to discover nearby devices.
(ehtools)> startINFO: Start monitor mode on the wireless network adapter.
(ehtools)> stopINFO: Stop wireless monitor mode on the network adapter.
