How to Build a Raspberry Pi TorrentBox

If you already use your Raspberry Pi as a server then you’ll want to add some torrent capabilities to it. Even if you are not using your Raspberry Pi as a server you can turn your Raspberry Pi into a torrent box using a very popular torrent program called Transmission. You may have heard of Transmission before, it comes pre-installed on many popular Debian based Linux distro’s.

Transmission is usually a standalone program you can use to manage your torrents but today I will be showing your how to install Transmission on your Raspberry Pi and run and manage your torrents from your browser. This is beneficial because you can download torrents from anywhere in your house and connect your Raspberry Pi to a Network Attached Storage and store your files there. If you have a VPN at home you can even connect to your network and tell your Raspberry Pi TorrentBox what to download.

I currently have my Raspberry Pi running a network wide adblocker, Kodi, and a Raspberry Pi VPN and found that it can handle running a torrent client like Transmission with ease. Transmission really doesn’t take up to much process power and the Raspberry Pi runs the web GUI with ease.

Objective

To install a torrent client onto our Raspberry Pi and turn our Raspberry Pi into a TorrentBox

Material

You will need the following:

Instructions

I will assume you are running Raspbian on your Raspberry Pi. You can also follow this tutorial for any Debian based Linux distro. I have Rasbian Jessie Lite installed on my Raspberry Pi and will be connecting to my Pi over SSH to install Transmission.

How to Crack WPA2 WiFi Networks using the Raspberry Pi

Cracking WPA and WPA 2 networks is still very difficult and solely dependent on using a brute force attack with a good dictonary. Depending on the word-list that you use will improve the success rate of cracking WPA2 WiFi networks. In this tutorial I will be showing you how to grab the 4-Way handshake from a WPA2 WiFi network and how to do an offline brute-force cracking attempt at find the password for the WiFi network. The Raspberry Pi 3 can check around 500 keys per second which is not really fast when you have a word-list with over 10 millions passwords to check.

The Raspberry Pi 3 can check around 1.8 million passwords an hour which again it doesn’t gurantee that it will be able to find the correct password for a WPA2 WiFi network. The best use of the Raspberry Pi in hacking WiFi networks is that you can use it to collect a 4-Way handshake and then transfer the handshake for cracking to a more powerful computer. The reason the Raspberry Pi is good for a scenrio like this is because of its mobility. You can easilly attach a battery to your Pi and put it in a backback and walk around collecting handshakes to crack.

Today’s tutorial will show you how to capture a 4-Way Handshake and then use our Raspberry Pi 3 to crack the password. We will be using the aircrack-ng suite to collect the handshake and then to crack the password. You will need a good word-list for cracking. There are many word-lists out there. One of the biggest word-lists I have seen is the CrackStation Wordlist which has over 1.5 Billion passwords that have been put together from many data breaches like Linked In and MySpace. Let’s get started.

Objective

To capture a 4-Way Handshake from a WPA2 WiFi network and crack the password using a brute-force method

Material

You will need the following:

Instructions

I will be running a freshly installed version of Raspbian Jessie on my Raspberry Pi. You can use Rasbian Jessie Lite on your Raspberry Pi since we will just needing the terminal and I will be using SSH to run all my commands. Go ahead and connect to your Raspberry Pi and lets begin by installing the aircrack-ng suite on our Raspberry Pi. Run the following command to install the dependencies for the aircrack-ng suite: Continue Reading

How to set a Static IP Address on the Raspberry Pi running Raspbian Jessie+

About: With the release of Raspbian Jessie made all older methods of setting a static IP Address on the Raspberry Pi obsolete. You no longer need to edit /etc/network/interfaces . You will now need to edit /etc/dhcpcd.conf to set your static IP address on the Raspberry Pi. Setting a static IP address is easy and useful if you are running something that requires the IP address to remain the same after a reboot. This is useful is you are using your Raspberry Pi as a web server or a DNS server.

Objective: To set a Static IP Address on our Raspberry Pi running Raspbian Jessie or newer

Material: You will need the following:

  • Raspberry Pi (Click the link to check out the price on Amazon. Usually around $37 with free shipping)

Instructions: Let’s start off by going into your terminal on your Pi. Continue Reading

How to install aircrack-ng suite on the Raspberry Pi

About: In some cases you may need to install the aircrack-ng suite on a Raspberry Pi that’s dedicated to hacking like the official Raspbian distro. That’s not a problem. Installing aircrack-ng on the Raspberry Pi is very easy and I’ll show you how to get it up and running in just a few steps. This tutorial is also useful if you need to update your aircrack-ng suite when using Kali or PwnPi that comes with an older version.

Objective: To demonstrate how to install aircrack-ng suite on the Raspbian distro for the Raspberry Pi

Material: You will need the following:

Instructions: Let’s begin by installing the libraries that are needed to get aircrack-ng to work on the Raspberry Pi. Type in the following command: Continue Reading
