Crack WiFi Network WPA Password

I came across an interesting article on Google+ from Life Hacker today, it explains how to Crack WiFi Network WPA password using Reaver.  I am really interested in knowing more details about how this crack works but from what I gather from just looking at it, it seems to brute force its way into the WPS or Wireless Protected Setup.  WPS systems seem to suffer from a poor design structure and poor implementation.  Adam over at Life Hacker put a nice how to together to actually test this, so if you have a router that has WPS enabled try cracking it yourself.

Things you will need:

  1. A wireless laptop.
  2. Back Track Linux.
  3. A network connection to download and install Reaver.
  4. Time.
