How to Download and Use Beini ISO for WEP Network Auditing
If you want to test the security of your Wi-Fi network, you might be interested in Beini ISO, a free and lightweight Linux distribution that includes tools to recover WEP and WPA passwords. In this article, we will show you how to download and use Beini ISO for WEP network auditing.
What is Beini ISO?
Beini ISO is a LiveCD operating system that can run from a CD or a USB device without installing anything on your hard drive. It is designed to audit the encryption of Wi-Fi networks and recover their passwords. Beini ISO contains two main tools:
A Wi-Fi scanner: this tool detects the wireless networks around you and measures their signal strength, encryption type, channel, and MAC address.
A packet injection tool: this tool allows you to inject packets into a Wi-Fi network to capture its traffic and crack its password.
Beini ISO supports a wide range of devices and Wi-Fi cards, but you should check the compatibility list before using it. You should also be aware that using Beini ISO for illegal purposes or without permission from the network owner is a crime.
How to Download Beini ISO?
You can download Beini ISO from the official website of Xiaopan OS, a project that develops Linux distributions for wireless security testing. To download Beini ISO, follow these steps:
Go to https://sourceforge.net/projects/xiaopanos/files/Beini/ .
Click on the latest version of Beini ISO (currently 1.2.5).
Click on the Download button. This will download a ZIP file containing the Beini ISO file.
Extract the ZIP file to a folder of your choice.
How to Use Beini ISO?
To use Beini ISO, you need to burn it to a CD or copy it to a USB device. Then, you need to boot your computer from the CD or USB device and run Beini ISO. To use Beini ISO, follow these steps:
Burn the Beini ISO file to a CD or copy it to a USB device using a tool like Rufus or UNetbootin.
Insert the CD or USB device into your computer and restart it.
Access the BIOS settings of your computer and change the boot order to boot from the CD or USB device first.
When Beini ISO loads, select your language and press Enter.
Select Xiaopan OS (Beini) and press Enter.
Select Start Xiaopan OS (Beini) and press Enter.
Wait for Beini ISO to load the desktop environment.
Double-click on the Feeding Bottle icon on the desktop. This will launch the packet injection tool.
Select your Wi-Fi card from the list and click OK.
Select Scan Mode from the drop-down menu and click OK. This will scan for wireless networks around you.
Select the WEP network you want to audit from the list and click OK.
Select Fake Auth Attack from the drop-down menu and click OK. This will associate your Wi-Fi card with the target network.
Select ARP Replay Attack from the drop-down menu and click OK. This will inject packets into the target network to generate traffic.
Wait for enough data packets to be captured (at least 10,000) and click OK.
Select Crack Key from the drop-down menu and click OK. This will launch aircrack-ng to crack the WEP password.
Wait for the password to be displayed in hexadecimal format (for example, 12:34:56:78:90).
Note that cracking WEP passwords may take some time depending on the signal strength, network activity, and password complexity. You can also try other attacks such as Fragmentation Attack or ChopChop Attack if ARP Replay Attack does not work.
