Hak5 -- Cyber Security Education, Inspiration, News & Community since 2005:

On this episode of HakByte, Alex Lynd shows how to set up a $3 NAT router on the ESP8266 WiFi microcontroller, which can be used to legally practice WiFi hacking. This episode demonstrates using the WiFi Nugget to run a deauthentication attack against the $3 access point, and capturing a handshake using Aircrack-ng on a Linux computer.
