.ivs File Extension

Developer: N/A
File type: Initialization Vector File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .ivs. Files with the file extension .ivs can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .ivs files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .ivs file?

The Initialization Vector Files used by Aircrack-ng as well as other applications for WEP wireless network key cracking are called IVS files. These are categorized as data files containing initialization vectors which are useful for the generation of encrypted data on the network. IVS files make use of a cracking utility in order to be processed and for the WEP key of the network could be acquired. Cracking a WEP key with the Aircrack-ng may require performance of an ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) network injection as this will force the generation of packets with new IVs by the wireless device. The dumped IVs are saved into IVS files and this is what the Aircrack-ng application uses to decipher WEP keys. The Aircrack-ng software is a very useful tool for the recovering of keys because it is able to do so once they have captured enough data packets. The software runs on Windows as well as it also refers to a set of tools for wireless network auditing.

how to open a .ivs file?

Launch a .ivs file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .ivs file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .ivs files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .ivs file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .ivs file will open the correct application.

Aircrack-ng is a type of keys cracking software that primarily recovery 802.11 WPA-PSK and WEP keys but that is enough packets of data are already captured. This program implements two types of attacks which are the standard FMS attack and PTW attack, plus KoreK attacks for optimizations. These make each and every attack to work quicker than using cracking tools for WEP. Aside from that, Aircrack-ng is actually a toolset that enables auditing of wireless networks, 802.11 in particular. Cracking keys by this software product involves three steps only. The first step is to determine the chipset in the wireless card used. Secondly, there are three options to select from to run this program. These three options are through Linux distribution, CD and VMWare image – all of these three must contain the latest version of Aircrack-ng Suite. Last, but not the least, start running the program to crack WEP keys and WPA-PSK keys.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .ivs files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .ivs. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
