Wi-Fi Alliance has introduced the next-gen standard WPA3 and this is a great move in WiFi Security. The new standard is an upgrade over the WPA2, announced over a decade ago with simplified security, more robust authentication and increased strength for highly sensitive data markets.
The WPA3 security method will continue to support two modes – WPA3-Personal and WPA3-Enterprise. The latter will introduce Simultaneous Authentication of Equals (SAE) protocol to make it harder for others to guess the password, while the former will offer 192-bit cryptographic strength for additional protection.
Wi-Fi Alliance introduced Easy Connect as well, a program that allows Wi-Fi devices with small screens or no display at all to connect while keeping up with the WPA3 security standards. Wi-Fi Easy Connect will simply lets users to connect the IoT device by scanning a QR code.
