I’ve just updated the Wiki with new entries about two of the visible changes in upcoming version 0.2.5 which are already in svn.
The new command attack_cowpatty takes PMKs from a file in cowpatty-format to attack a handshake found in a capture-file. The cowpatty-database may have been generated by genpmk or (more likely :-)) by export_cowpatty; the file can be gzip-compressed. This new command allows you to use cowpatty-databases as a more easily movable and/or manageable storage device than Pyrit’s own database. After computation has completed, you may export your PMKs to a cowpatty-file (export_cowpatty), put that single file on DVD and use it later on with attack_cowpatty…
The other new command is stripLive. As the name suggests, it works very similar to strip but is targeted more towards live capture sources. Kismet for example can create a fifo (a pseudo-file) that can be read by Pyrit. The packets captured from the air through Kismet are then fed directly into Pyrit which filters the relevant packets and immediately writes them to a new dump file. This turns Pyrit into a decent packet-sinkhole that only writes those few packets to disk that are really interesting.
Please see the manual for examples.
