New Wi-Fi Security Standards Will Protect Against Bad Passwords

Kristine Garrett | 12 Января, 2018, 23:56

The news was announced by The Wi-Fi Alliance, comprised of tech corporations such as Intel, Microsoft and Qualcomm among others, with WPA3 boasting four new features to enhance security protection and accessibility for both personal and enterprise networks.

For those unaware, KRACK (short for Key Reinstallation AttaCK) exploited vulnerabilities in the four-way handshake of WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access II) that happens when a client wants to join a protected Wi-Fi network.

A new security protocol for Wi-Fi will be launched before the end of the year, according the industry body responsible for the standard. These upgrades will improve healthcare network security by refining configuration, authentication, and encryption to keep up with evolving security threats.

In conjunction with this week's commencement of CES - letters that once stood for Consumer Electronics Show and now come meaning-free - the Wi-Fi Alliance on Monday heralded the arrival of WPA3 as the successor to WPA2, the flawed but widely used network security protocol for Wi-Fi communication.

Wi-Fi Alliance expects the WPA3 standard to be released later this year.

Though WPA3 is set to provide stronger protection for Wi-Fi users, it highlights the larger issue of the BYOD models many businesses are adopting. It will prevent hackers from trying to guess every possible combination of a password.

A 192-bit security suite protects Wi-Fi networks with high security requirements and is aligned with the Commercial National Security Algorithm (CNS) Suite from the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS). The new standards will offer robust protections even when users choose to protect their documents with "1234", as well as simplify the process of setting up security for devices with limited or no display interface for smart home devices. Via Twitter, Mathy Vanhoef, a postdoctoral computer security researcher at Belgium's KU Leuven, speculates that this may be an implementation of Opportunistic Wireless Encryption (OWE), a proposed extension to the 802.11 wireless standard.

Companies have time to prepare for the new version of WPA, and next generation devices will likely be WPA3 compatible.
