Yes! New WPA3 Security Template: H Wi-Fi Alliance, which are various device manufacturers, such as Apple, Microsoft and Qualcomm, announced the Monday 9 January, the next generation WPA3 wireless security model.
The standard will replace WPA2, a security protocol that almost exists two δεκαετίες και είναι ενσωματωμένο για την προστασία σχεδόν κάθε ασύρματης deviceς σήμερα, όπως phones, laptops, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
According to the Wi-Fi Alliance, devices supporting WPA3 will be released later in the 2018.
Devices must be WPA3 certified to be eligible for this feature; in other words, they must apply for and receive the signal.Wi-Fi CERTIFIED ™ WPA3 ™“. So you will probably start seeing this logo on new routers and other wireless devices by the end of 2018.
The Wi-Fi Alliance has not announced anything about whether existing devices will be able to support the new WPA3, but we should not wait for it because we will be disappointed.
Πολλές συσκευές θα μπορούσαν να λάβουν θεωρητικά ενημερώσεις λογισμικού ή firmware για την support του WPA3, αλλά οι κατασκευαστές θα έπρεπε να κάνουν αιτήσεις για λάβουν την πιστοποίηση WPA3 για το υπάρχον υλικό τους πριν προχωρήσουν σε αυτές τις ενημερώσεις. Αυτό φυσικά κοστίζει και οι περισσότεροι κατασκευαστές θα προpriceσουν να δαπανήσουν τους πconditions them to develop new devices instead of getting certifications for old ones.
Here, we should mention that even if you have a WPA3 router, you will need WPA3 compatible devices (laptop, phone and everything else connected to Wi-Fi) to take full advantage of this new security feature.
The good news is that the router can support both WPA2 and WPA3 security standards at the same time.
So, once WPA3 is released and it is not widespread, it will take a long transitional period in which some devices will connect to your new WPA2 router, while others will be connected to WPA3.
When all of your devices will support WPA3, you will be able to disable WPA2 on your router to improve security, as you can disable any obsolete WPA and WEP security standards and only use WPA2 connections on your router today.
Although it will take some time for the full development of WPA3, the important thing is that the transition process starts in 2018. Let's see when it will be completed…
