Wi-Fi Alliance Announces WP3

New Wi-Fi Security Standards Will Protect Against Bad Passwords 2018 Wi-Fi routers to get WPA3 wireless protection
Sandra Phillips | 12 January, 2018, 23:36

Because the Wi-Fi Protected Alliance must certify hardware before it can use the WPA3 protocol, it could take several months before companies can support the new security protocol.

KitGuru Says: This is certainly a welcome change as there are many security flaws that have been identified with the long-serving WPA2.

WPA is a standard that provides security as different devices are sending and receiving data over a Wi-Fi connection.

Wi-Fi Alliance, a non-profit organization that decides Wi-Fi standards, has announced the release of WPA3 with several security improvements over WPA2 after the KRACK exploit a year ago affected nearly every Wi-Fi supported device.

The Wi-Fi Alliance - an industry group that counts Apple, Cisco, Intel, Microsoft, and Qualcomm among its many members - said it intends to keep hammering away at WPA2, even as it rolls out the protocol's successor. The new WPA2 testing upgrades will reduce vulnerabilities caused by network misconfiguration and use centralized authentication services to safeguard managed networks.

Roy Keane to leave too if Martin O'Neill joins Stoke
Dunphy also called on the FAI to explain why a new contract had not been signed after the deal was verbally agreed in October. O'Neill and Keane have worked together for Ireland since 2013 but did not manage to secure a spot at this summer's World Cup.

WPA2 has been in use since 2004 and has been found to be less than optimal for the safety needs of modern Wi-Fi users.

The standard will include better password protection and will simplify security configurations for devices that have a limited or no display interface.

WPA3 will also protect users whose passwords are considered weak and don't abide by complexity regulations. This protects against the so-called brute force attacks.

The remaining two features focus on encryption, with one "strengthen [ing] user privacy in open networks through individualized data encryption", and the other offering a stronger 192-bit security suite that aligns with the Commercial National Security Algorithm (CNSA) Suite from the Committee on National Security Systems, according to the Wi-Fi Alliance. WPA2 while still useful, has several problems that WPA3 hopes to remedy, according to Github. Once the password is compromised, the cyberattacker can then spoof the traffic of anyone on the network. The protocol is expected to emerge later this year. This is a key concern as IT infrastructure technology becomes more advanced.
