New Wifi security standard WPA3 can solve many security issues..





  Last year wifi security vulnerability allowed attacker to execute “KRACK – Key Reinstallation Attack”, that allowed attackers to perform sniffing on the “encrypted network”. That indecent build up requirement to enhance the encryption standard.

  Its good hear that WPA3 is out now, WPA3 will be protected against the KRACK vulnerability, As per the current information other features of WPA3 will be:



  • Stronger Protection, even against weaker passwords – Passwords are at the crux of the WPA3 standards, even for Wi-Fi users who use terrible passwords like “password.” 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.
  • A new handshake process between networks and devices can create tough time for attacker to capture handshake packet use it for decryption.
  • Protection against brute-force dictionary attacks – This is done by blocking authentication after a set number of failed login attempts. 
  • Individualized data encryption – Uses a stronger 192-bit security suite
      
     New devices supporting WPA3 is expected to be out next year.
