I have a Dell N5110 15R Laptop that I'm planning to use for GPU based cracking of WPA/WPA2 passwords. The thing is, I'm not a really big fan of password dictionaries and rainbow tables, I'd rather like to go with a bruteforce method. I don't know the difference in time it takes but I'm trying to go for the least timing here.
Anyway, from what I understand my laptop is equipped with Optimus which alternates between the built in Intel Graphics Card and the Nvidia GT525M card. The problem is that there's no direct way of getting linux to see the Nvidia card, let alone alternate between them. I'm not planning on using the graphics, I just need the card for GPU cracking. Any ideas there?
That's one part, the other part is to build a certain setup that would let me crack WPA/WPA2 password by running a bruteforce attack on them (without using a wordlist). I don't know how much time it would take to complete a task like this, but if you have any idea please let me know. So far I understand that I need to tunnel JTR and airodump to accomplish that task. Any ideas there as well?
Any help would be appreciated! :)
