Wi-Fi Alliance Announces WPA3 Protocol with New Security Features, Coming 2018

After the discovery of KRACK (Key Reinstallation Attack) in the WPA2 security protocol, a severe flaw that lets attackers intercept passwords and other sensitive information transmitted through your wireless network, Wi-Fi Alliance announced at CES 2018 that they’d release WPA3 this year with an extra layer of security enhancements. These include new configuration, encryption, and authentication features across the entire family of Wi-Fi CERTIFIED security solution, which we are using for more than a decade to communicate with each other and access the Internet. With these new improvements, Wi-Fi Alliance promises state-of-the-art security protections.
