Wi-Fi routers to get WPA3 wireless protection

New Wi-Fi Security Standards Will Protect Against Bad Passwords

WPA3, however, introduces a specification for device specific encyption, which means that even if the network can be accessed without passwords you'll be able to securely transmit data without worrying about interception by other devices. Just last fall, it was discovered that a major vulnerability in WPA2 and WPA dubbed KRACK-Key Reinstallation Attack-could allow attackers to snoop on what is supposed to be encrypted traffic exchanged between computers and wireless access points. These upgrades will improve healthcare network security by refining configuration, authentication, and encryption to keep up with evolving security threats.

The Wi-Fi Alliance, with members including Apple, Dell Technologies, Intel and Microsoft, is rolling out WPA3, its replacement for WPA2, to help mitigate the risk of open Wi-Fi networks, according to the organization's announcement.

WPA3 will protect against that exploit, along with others. However, for now, WPA2 will remain the standard in Wi-Fi devices.

"New testing enhancements will...reduce the potential for vulnerabilities due to network misconfiguration, and further safeguard managed networks with centralized authentication services", the organization said. It will prevent hackers from trying to guess every possible combination of a password.

Use 192-bit security, aligned with the Commercial National Security Algorithm, to protect critical networks.

The technology is expected to arrive on shelves sometime this year, with prices varying wildly depending on the device.

WPA3 improvements also include protection for users who choose weak passwords and individualized data encryption on open networks, as it should strengthen privacy and provide nearly as much security as a home network. These devices typically don't have display interfaces and WPA3 will simplify the process of configuring security for those devices. WPA2 used a four-way handshake to access a network, but the newer version has a more resilient handshake, "which will not be vulnerable to dictionary attacks", a method of infiltrating a computer's network through password generating, Mathy Vanhoef, a computer security academic, told ZDNet.
