WiFi Alliance Announces WPA3 for Tighter WiFi Security
Jan 9, 2018, 12:43 PM by Eric M. Zeman
The WiFi Alliance today said it is undertaking new efforts to secure the experience and use of WiFi. The organization plans to enhance the existing WPA2 standard to further reduce potential vulnerabilities. WPA2 will continue to be deployed across devices for the foreseeable future. The WiFi Alliance also plans four new capabilities for personal and enterprise WiFi security this year as part of WiFi Certified WPA3. One core feature will be stronger protections even when users choose weak passwords. Moreover, WPA3 will simplify the process of securing access points that don't have a display or interface. The forthcoming standard will provide individualized data encryption to protect data as it moves from computers, tablets, and phones to access points. Last, WPA3 will include a 192-bit security suite to help businesses and governments adopt the highest levels of protection.
