New features in 0.2.5

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.
