WPA3 Wi-Fi protocol aims to improve security in 2018

Wi-Fi symbol in the sky

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. Cyberthreats have grown in both variety and frequency over the last few decades, and the current state of WPA2 simply does meet the new level of security standards.

In the intervening period, the Wi-Fi Alliance will enhance WPA2 to ensure that it provides strong security protection.

Evolving security threats call for change in network security standards, which is why WPA3 has been so highly anticipated.

The group, a global network of hundreds of companies within the Wi-Fi ecosystem, has set standards and certified 35,000 devices since being launched in 2000.

The association, which includes some of the technology industry's most powerful companies, announced it will use the widespread adoption of WPA2 as a platform to deliver new security configurations. The protocol is expected to emerge later this year.

This will be the first upgrade to the Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) protocol since 2006.

Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (DLR)- Stocks Taking Toll on Performance Valuation
After a recent look, we have noticed that the Piotroski F Score is sitting at 5 or above for Education Realty Trust Inc (EDR). Shares of Federal Realty Investment Trust ( FRT ) traded down $1.60 during midday trading on Wednesday, hitting $123.84.

The new WPA3 protocol will be available for consumer and business wireless devices later this year.

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.

The remaining two features focus on encryption, with one "strengthen [ing] user privacy in open networks through individualized data encryption", and the other offering a stronger 192-bit security suite that aligns with the Commercial National Security Algorithm (CNSA) Suite from the Committee on National Security Systems, according to the Wi-Fi Alliance.

Vanhoef also suggests the improved password protection could take the form of Simultaneous Authentication of Equals (SAE), or Dragonfly, a password-based key exchange protocol for mesh networks.

Another advantage of WPA3 is that it includes "robust protection" and streamlines security configurations for devices which either have very small displays or no displays at all.
