As opposed to relating connectivity with illegal substances, this page highlights a severe vulnerability in the most widely used wireless security protocol; Wi-Fi Protected Access 2
The exploits-known as Key Reinstallation Attacks or (http://www.ibtimes.com/g00/wifi-wpa2-krack-attack-flaw-heres-how-stay-safe-vulnerability-2602197?i10c.encReferrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbS8%3D) KRACK -affect Wi-Fi Protected Access 2
(WPA2), a protocol that is the current industry standard for encryption that is used to secure traffic on Wi-Fi networks.
* Use wireless Wi-Fi Protected Access 2
(WPA2) instead of WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) if you use wireless at home.
A researcher from leading wireless security firm Airtight Networks has uncovered a flaw in the Wi-Fi Protected Access 2
<p>WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2
) is the most advanced security standard for Wi-Fi.
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy), found to have a variety of security problems (a group from the FBI gave a demonstration where they cracked a WEP-protected network in three minutes using publicly available tools), was superseded by WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) and then by the IEEE 802.11i standard WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2
The WAG102 incorporates a robust security feature set that includes Wi-Fi Protected Access 2
-- Enterprise (WPA2-Enterprise) and 802.11i.
The solution includes support for Wi-Fi Protected Access 2
, based on the final 802.11i standard and offers security in the form of Advance Encryption Standard level encryption, as well as faster roaming between access points.
(NASDAQ:CNXT), a leader in semiconductor solutions for broadband communications, enterprise networks and the digital home, today announced that its IEEE 802.11a/b/g dual-band PRISM WorldRadio MiniPCI Module reference design has achieved Wi-Fi Certification for WMM (Wi-Fi Multimedia) and WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2
Aruba Wireless Networks (Aruba) is the first centralized wireless LAN (WLAN) systems supplier to obtain 802.11i (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2
) certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance.
The systems we tested had a variety of enterprise-level features, such as Power over Ethernet; dynamic radio-frequency control; QoS; and such security functions as intrusion prevention and detection, Wi-Fi Protected Access 2
, and stateful firewalls.
The product offers an encrypted installation process and is the first wireless print server to work with the Wi-Fi Protected Access 2
security standard, Axis claims.
