Building a Pwnagotchi

Pwnagotchi is an A2C-based “AI” powered by bettercap and running on a Raspberry Pi Zero W that learns from its surrounding WiFi environment in order to maximize the crackable WPA key material it captures. This material is collected on disk as PCAP files containing any form of handshake supported by hashcat, including full and half WPA handshakes as well as PMKIDs.

Continuous Penetration Testing

Having been part of the penetration testing industry for over 15 years, I’ve been challenged by many clients with this very question. The fact is that they are right, a penetration test is a point-in-time assessment and new vulnerabilities are discovered every day.
