He innovated the new method to hack the WPA/WPA 2 while has worked on the recently launched WPA3. According to him, the new method attacks exclusively on WPA/WPA2 wireless network protocols with the help of Pairwise Master-Key Identifier (PMKI). Steube was working the new WPA key when he accidentally discovered the new hacking method that comprises WPA/AP2 security in the Wifi networks.

According to the Hashcat developer, the new Wifi hacking method enables the attackers to acquire Pre-shared Key login credentials of the Wifi network. With the help of the credentials, the attackers can trespass the security barrier.

The Hacat researcher also explained that the new method is different from the other methods where you have to wait for another user to login in order to capture the full authentication of EOPL. This method eliminates the need for another user you can directly target the networks and acquire to hack the Wifi, as it is performed on RSNIE (Robust Security Network Information Element).
