The ESPTool is a convenient Tool to test your WiFi Security against attackers. It can demonstrate how easy it is to crack a WiFi Password or jam your WiFi so you can’t access the internet. This Tool is designed for education and self-tests.
Be aware that it is illegal to use this device on Networks other than your own.

Why automation? – Of course, there are tools for all of the attacks below, but the ESPTool wants to offer a way to automate these processes in a nice and convenient way. The small form-factor allows you to take it everywhere with you and the simple UI makes it convenient and easy to use. Have you ever tried using aircrack? You first need a WiFi chipset that supports monitor mode and then you have to enter long commands with lots of parameters over and over. This is what the ESPTool tries to automate. WiFi Security for the masses.
