WiFi security is finally being upgraded after 14 years. Wi-Fi matching band παρουσίασε χθες και επίσημα το WPA3, το νέο WiFi πρότυπο που υπόσχεται να αντιμετωπίσει πολλά από τα vulnerable σημεία που υπάρχουν στην ασύρματη δικτύωση.
The Wi-Fi Alliance, which is a partnership of companies consisting of various device manufacturers, such as Apple, Microsoft and Qualcomm, presented yesterday in a related announcement at on-line of the place, mode of operation and security of the new expected WP3 protocol.
According to its writings, the new WPA3 brings personalized encryption data protection that will protect your data from being tracked over the WiFi network. You'll also have tighter connections through SAE (Simultaneous Authentication of Equals), which is a key setup protocol that reduces the chances of someone guessing your password – even if it's a simple one.
If you use WPA3-Enterprise Professional Security, you will have a similar encryption power to 192-bit, which should make it more difficult to break secure data. There will also be an easier setup for smart home devices via Easy Connect, which will allow you to use your phone to set up your WiFi devices that have either a small screen or no screen at all.
For when will you see WPA3 on your devices depends on the manufacturer and when they will introduce WP3 through updates or hardware replacement. WPA2 won't stop working anytime soon (it will remain interoperable), but WPA3 support will eventually become mandatory on any Wi-Fi Alliance-certified product, and it will likely come pre-configured device with WPA3 as default.
