Will WPA3 Finally Ensure Secure Wi-Fi?
In the two decades since its introduction, Wi-Fi has become omnipresent: from laptops to TVs, from phones to ‘smart’ toothbrushes. And when devices want to wirelessly communicate online or with each other, they are probably using Wi-Fi. Unfortunately the underlying protocols have various vulnerabilities, and enable attackers to eavesdrop wireless communication or gain access to restricted networks. Now, the Wi-Fi Alliance has released the improved Wi-Fi security standard WPA3, along with two sister standards. Will these improvements finally allow us to put more trust in the security of our wireless communications? Major vulnerabilities in WPA2 are fixed, but some shortcomings are still present.
In this white paper you will learn more about:
- The need for Wi-Fi security
- The state of Wi-Fi security today
- The new WPA3 standard: Wi-Fi Enhanced Open, WPA3 Personal, WPA3 Enterprise & Wi-Fi Easy Connect
Furthermore you will get an overview of the current level of protection against Wi-Fi attacks, per technology (Open Wi-Fi, WPA2 Personal, WPA2 Enterprise, WPA3 Personal, WPA Enterprise, Protected Open, Easy Connect).
