Aircrack-NG, the WEP and WPA-PSK cracking application, has been released as a finalised 1.0 version, after being in beta test since October 2007. The application, also billed as "a set of tools for auditing wireless networks", incorporates a packet sniffer and analysis tools which can be used with any wireless card that supports raw monitoring mode. The code, a fork of the original Aircrack, runs on Windows and Linux, with ports to Zaurus and Maemo devices.

The 1.0 release was made in conjunction with the launch of the new website and logo for the wireless cracking and auditing tool. The change log details changes that have been made to the application since the first beta release of Aircrack-ng 1.0 was made available in 2007, though little has changed since the last beta release beyond a number of bug fixes. Aircrack-ng is available as source code, windows binaries, a VMWare image or as part of a Live CD and is licensed under the GPLv2.
