Kali finally anounced a new version of its OS Kali Linux 2017.1 on 25th april. which brings with it a bunch of exciting updates and features. As with all new releases, you have the common denominator of updated packages, an updated kernel that provides more and better hardware support, as well as a slew of updated tools – but this release has a few more surprises up its sleeve.
Support for RTL8812AU Wireless Card Injection
These drivers are not part of the standard Linux kernel, and have been modified to allow for injection. Why is this a big deal? This chipset supports 802.11 AC, making this one of the first drivers to bring injection-related wireless attacks to this standard, and with companies such as ALFA making the AWUS036ACH wireless cards, Kali team expect this card to be an arsenal favourite.
The driver can be installed using the following commands:
apt install realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms
Streamlined Support for CUDA GPU Cracking
Installing proprietary graphics drivers has always been a source of frustration in Kali. Fortunately, improvements in packaging have made this process seamless – allowing our users a streamlined experience with GPU cracking. Together with supported hardware, tools such as Hashcat and Pyrit can take full advantage of NVIDIA GPUs within Kali.
