WPA 3 is here. It will be disruptive.

Jun 27, 2018 9:06AM PDT

Read https://www.cnet.com/news/wpa3-wi-fi-is-here-and-its-harder-to-hack/ for the news but my view is it's overdue.

I'm keep quiet about WPA 2 and how there are crackers in the cloud since the ones I know about are not (a) easy to use and (b) cost to get a crack in a few hours.

The disruptive part will be for those with a few XP machines and devices that won't get WPA 3.

WPA2 is a security standard that governs what happens when you connect to a closed Wi-Fi network using a password. WPA2 defines the protocol a router and Wi-Fi client devices use to perform the “handshake” that allows them to securely connect and how they communicate. Unlike the original WPA standard, WPA2 requires implementation of strong AES encryption that is much more difficult to crack. This encryption ensures that a Wi-Fi access point (like a router) and a Wi-Fi client (like a laptop or phone) can communicate wirelessly without their traffic being snooped on.
