Due to oclHashcat-plus' limitations I was looking for WPA/WPA2 in hashcat and I was really suprised when I saw hashcat doesn't support it. So, while oclHashcat has its limitations, please, could you add this algorithm to hashcat ?
Why, it would incredibly slow
Yes, it would, but actually, I don't need to go through long wordlists, I have my small wordlist which should contain 1st part of password for sure, but i would like to brute force 2nd part (just 3 numbers), but 1st part + 2nd part is longer than 15 characters.

What limitations? The only limitation is if your out and about, (war-driving), and your laptop or whatever doesn't have GPU which supports cracking. In which case yes, I can understand why u would want CPU but tbh, just get a laptop which has a dedicated GPU and a good one, miles better than using CPU.

From WIKI...
I would also appreciate WPA to be supported in hashcat.

It would allow me to use an old laptop, whilst out and about.

Aircrack doesn't support rules or large dictionaries and it just isn't the same Smile
isn't aircrack good enough for such easy tasks? I think it accepts stdin wordlists, so this is easy to deal with in combination with maskprocessor.
Well, I think hashcat would be faster, as I know aircrack is slower than for example John The Ripper, and I know hashcat is far away faster than John The Ripper.

But to clear it out, I'm requesting this feature only becouse oclHashcat doesn't support passwords of lenght longer than 15 characters. Remove that limitation would be better than applying this feature into hashcat.
+1 for WPA(2) in Hashcat CPU. If not this, then at least a tool to reverse a .hccap back to .cap since I often acquire .hccaps but need to use CPU.
And I forgot, I can use one AMD Opteron, so it wouldn't be totally useless Smile
