WPA uncracked by Oclhashcat-plus
I have captured a 4-way WPA handshake between a wireless station and wireless Access point.

The beacon frame as well as the 4 frames for the 4 way handshake are captured.

I know the password (key used to connect to Access Point) since I had set it on my own to test.

aircrack-ng is able to crack it. I have placed the password in a dictionary manually and then used aircrack-ng to crack it:

aircrack-ng -a 2 -w passwd.txt A601.cap

Now, I wanted to try it using oclhashcat-plus

So, I converted my PCAP to hccap (compatible with oclhashcat-plus).

In order to convert it to hccap I am using this site:


since I have not compiled the cap2hccap in Linux.

The website successfully generates the hccap file and when I use it to crack the password using oclhashcat-plus and the dictionary with correct password, it does not find it.

I am using Oclhashcat-plus 0.081. I know that it is not the latest version however it should be able to crack a WPA handshake.

here is the output from oclhashcat-plus:

I am providing the PCAP file here so that you can test it.

Here is the password for the Wireless Access Point: abominallyfoolish

You can place this password in your wordlist and try it along with oclhashcat-plus.
Read wiki. Max pass length - 15 char.
Thank you for the observation. I am aware of this limitation however overlooked the fact in this case. I thought the data was not captured correctly.
