Abstract

Security mechanisms of wireless technologies often suffer weaknesses that can be exploited to perform Man-in-the-Middle attacks, allowing to eavesdrop or to spoof network communication. This paper focuses on possibilities of automation of these types of attacks using already available tools for specific tasks. Outputs of this research are the  Python package and the  tool, both implemented in Python. The package provides functionality for automation of attacks and can be used by other software. The  tool is an example of such software that can automatically perform multiple attack scenarios without any intervention from an investigator.
