PSKracker is a collection of WPA/WPA2/WPS default algorithms/password generators/pingens written in C.


C compiler



git clone


cd pskracker


sudo make install


Usage: pskracker <arguments>

Required Arguments:
	-t, --target	: Target model number

Optional Arguments:
	-b, --bssid	: BSSID of target
	-W, --wps	: Output possible WPS pin(s) only
	-G, --guest	: Output possible guest WPA key(s) only
	-s, --serial	: Serial number
	-f, --force	: Force full output
	-h, --help	: Display help/usage

Usage Example

pskracker -t <target> -s <serial number> -b <bssid>

  • More detailed usage examples and supported models can be found on the wiki.

Targeted Example

$ pskracker -t nvg599
$ pskracker -t dpc3941 -b 112233445566
  PSK: 5756C3915966657704

Supported OS

PSKracker should compile on macOS, Windows (with cygwin), and any Linux system.
It has been tested on macOS High Sierra 10.13.6, Windows 10, Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 18.04 and ArchLinux. Embedded systems are not supported, though may still work. PSKracker is intended to be run on true pentesting environments (Desktop/Workstation/Laptop). Some psk generators (not bruteforce) are still suitable for embedded systems, but I will not provide support due to the nature of the tool.

Some 32-bit systems (Raspberry Pi with Raspbian) do not support 128-bit integers that are currently used for the Arris NVG589 algorithm, and therefore are not supported by PSKracker at this time. You may have luck with a 64-bit OS running on a recent revision, but this has not been tested.
