WPA3: Wi-fi Alliance® Introduces Enhancements and New Features
Wi-Fi Alliance announces new Wi-fi security features of 2018 in Las Vegas, NV on January 8, 2018.The long-awaited next generation of the wireless security protocol "Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA3)". WPA2 will be replaced with WPA3 — the network security protocol that has been around for 15 years and is used by billions of wireless devices every day from smartphones, laptops and Internet of Things (IoT).
Anyhow, WPA2 has been investigated and is insecure due to its common security issue, that is unencrypted with open Wi-Fi networks, which allows the attack on the same Wi-Fi Network to intercept connections on other devices.
