New Security Standards for Wi-Fi
Believe it or not, the security standards for the Wi-Fi network haven’t been updated since 2004. Despite this, the protocol of the new generation was launched and it is aimed at ensuring the data security and confidentiality. It is called WPA3. The previous version has been used for 14 years and, of course, didn’t meet the major requirements of the market that has grown significantly for this period of time.
Principal System Changes
The main advantage is a saving of secure passwords that were obviously at stake in the previous protocol. Before, it was easy to guess a combination but now professionals are trying to minimize this chance.
Hackers who used brute force and quickly guessed the most difficult passwords took advantage of this. Now, there won’t be infinite versions of password inputs. There will be only one try, so intruders will have almost no chance to guess a password. The advantages of WPA3 are:
- high-security level;
- stable work;
- upgrades for all users (individual or corporate).
Now, there is a stronger encryption that will let keep data safe and secure. There is also a fundamentally new program CERTIFIED Easy Connect, due to which the functioning of devices with a limited interface is facilitated.
The new protocol isn’t still mandatory for being certified but the market segment will change soon. Just a few years and big investments, and the technology will become widespread. Because of this, there is a high likelihood that hackers will be able to find loopholes in it. However, we can still hope for WPA3 spreading out as fast as possible.
