    Hope its ok to ask this if it is not please delete thread. I was just wondering if there was any tools out there that alowed you to search for wep keys so that when your out and about you could browse the web on your itouch?

    Thanks in advance

    I would not be surprised if this thread were to be closed. Your blatantly asking how to do "most likely" illegal things. I say "most likely" illegal because I am not sure if its illegal everywhere now, or only in certain countries.
    I am sure your wireless at your house is setup so others walking by can use your wireless, or using WEP so others can hack it in under 2 minutes, and use it. And I am sure your cool with this happening to your wireless network.

    actually I am trying to make sure my network is safe. To answer quesetion no internet is not set for anyone to use. I saw a program that said it was easy and wanted to see if mine was or not.

    If you use WPA you'll be fine, if you use WEP you won't. Its simple ;).

    so if you use wpa then they cant get you and if you use wpa then it doesnt matter what you do you get hacked.

    You have a funny way of saying that:
    Stating that, and asking about a WEP hacking tool, really points to you being "out and about" and trying to hack into a wep wifi access point.

    I am pretty sure I know what your talking about, but you really need to proofread the questions you ask. Reread what I quoted, does what you posted even make sense? The irony is that the statement is correct. WPA is hackable, just not as easy as WEP. I will not link to any articles on how to, but a simple google search gives you the answer.

    WPA2 is hackable, but even less likely than WPA. You need to tools, and the time and the knowledge.

    Set your AP to its highest encryption level for authentication. Its the best you can do.

    i seriously doubt there will be any piece of software that does this on the ipod touch or iphone. the reason for that being is that most wep attacks (not all by any means) deal with re-injecting packets into a network access point. I do network security analysis for people as a job and i use backtrack (linux) and two wirless cards with prism chipsets... NOT... the apple wiresless card because it cant be put in active mode to do this reinjecting.

    its just too much work, PLUS.. on such a small wireless NIC you would have to sit there for way to long hacking a wireless WEP key.

    plus, WEP really is a very weak encryption. if you go back and do some research on it, it was never intended to be strong.

    oh, and ontop of all that, with as much attention ipod/iphone apps are getting right now, i have no doubt that person would be in a boatload of trouble. the guy who published kismac had to move to a different country or something beacuse he was getting sued (not sure how accurate all of that is, i know he had some troubles though)

    hope that helps,

    In some countries...

    ... such as France, some of the broadband operators have "opened" their set-top boxes to all the customers registered. This allows one to access any of those boxes with its own login/password, instead of those of the owner of the box. It is official (though not advertised a lot).
    For example, it happens that my west neighbour has exactly such set-top box, and I can connect to Internet through its box with my iPod Touch or iPhone (or any Wi-Fi enabled computer), providing I get close enough. Interesting when I am in the garden, as the westmost part is out of range of my Wi-Fi emitter ;)
    Walking around in the streets, I can generally find another "free" access point within 100 yards or so.
    Mind it, the protocols and ports are limited to HTTP and SMTP, but is is good enough as a backup solution. And semi-mobile.

    Operator - It is very easy to take pot shots at folk, when a person asks for help but does not have sufficient knowledge it is easy to ask things the wrong way.

    A wise man once said if you cant say something nice dont say anything at all. In this case if you cant help a person and more intent in knocking a person please refrain from posting I am sure people do not appreciate reading type of replies you have given.

    If this thread can be closed as any reply will be negative from operator and add no value.

    I agree, lock this thread, nothing you can say will change the fact that your initial question was:
    Which sounds suspiciously like you want to be out and about, and use other people's secure networks.

    There is nothing ileagal or suspicious in trying to check your own security of internet. If you choose to have / take a different interpretation that is your choice and says more about you than me.

    I explained my reasons but for some reason you seem to want to infer something that was not done despite being told.

    Instead of trying to boost your post count bating / flaming folk try helping others.

    If you choose to pic quotes to suit and twist its words into a different interpretation than what was previously stated and explained just to make yourself look big well you have my sympathy that you have nothing better in your life but to try and put someone down to boost your ego.

    As asked please close this thread as it will turn into nothing more than boost operators ego thread where he / she thinks it is so cool to try and put people down / attack for asking for help.

    P.S. Operator

    If you take a look at the view count of this thread you will see that there is a lot of people who are looking at this and are obviously either looking to add something positive to this thread / or are interested in what the question is and if it was possible.

    To all those who took the time to contribute in a POSITIVE manner and took no delight in trying to disrespect a person asking for help thank you so much your help was and is much appreciated.

    It is such a shame that there are folk in this forum that get their kicks out of trying to over compensate for their low self esteem by trying to put others down.

    If I remember correctly, there was a thread on the Kismac forums a while back about porting to the Touch.
