Updating aircrack

Most scanning software uses OUI information to report on hardware manufacturers, but requires some pre-processing of the database before it can be used.

Let's explore some of the interactive parameters (excerpt from the wiki): The screen refresh can be adjusted with the '--update' parameter.

So if you want it refreshed every 5 seconds instead of the 1 second default, use add '--update 5' to your airodump-ng command.

Among these tools, one that stands out is Aircrack-ng.

It’s an open source utility, freely available for use, and is very popular equally among crackers and Wi-Fi penetration testers/auditors alike.

Now let's scroll through the access points list using Tab.

Use the arrows UP and DOWN to navigate in the list.Each of them allows for post-install updates, but there’s no common code, and they don’t all ship with update utilities.If you have several scanning programs, you probably also have several copies of the OUI database.If you can't remember what they keys are, remember that every tool in the suite has a corresponding manual page. Most networking hardware uses some kind of hardware address. The first three octets comprise the OUI, or organisationally unique identifier, which identifies the manufacturer.Since the OUI database is updated regularly, I decided it’s worth detailing how the databases used by various bits of software can be updated.
