Wi-Fi Alliance officially introduced WPA3, the next-generation Wi-Fi security standard that, according to them, will eliminate all known security vulnerabilities and wireless attacks that occur today, including KRACK attacks.
The WPA3 security standard will replace the existing WPA2 that has been in existence for 15 years and is being widely used by billions of devices every day. The new security protocol provides some important improvements for Wi-Fi devices in terms of configuration, authentication, and encryption enhancements, making it difficult for hackers to infiltrate your network. Some of the new features include: protection against Brute Force attacks; protection of Public WiFi networks networks; stronger data encryption; easier connection with IoT devices through WiFi Easy Connect.
WPA3 will be implemented into devices later this year and is expected to be used ubiquitously /in 2019, when it becomes a mandatory requirement for Wi-Fi devices.
