Widely used network technologies and principles of wireless security suffer weaknesses that can be exploited to perform the Man-in-the-Middle attack, allowing to eavesdrop or to spoof the network communication. The work focuses on possibilities of automation of the attack with a utilization of available specialized tools. The outcome of the research is the wifimitm package and the wifimitmcli CLI tool, both implemented in Python. The package provides functionality for automated MitM attack and can be used by other software. The wifimitmcli tool is capable of performing a successful fully automated attack without any intervention from an investigator. 

This research is intended to be used for automated penetration testing and to ease forensic investigation. Finally, a popularization of the fact that such severe attacks can be successfully automated should be used to raise the public awareness about the information security.
