In January 2018, the WiFi Alliance announced that WPA3 was coming this year, a collection of security enhancements to address issues with WPA2.
Today, we discuss WPA3 with Dan Harkins, a scientist at Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company. Dan has been closely involved with WPA3’s development, and I heard Dan present on his work at Aruba Atmosphere 2018 in March of this year.
Dan was kind enough to join us today for a preview of what’s coming, with a special focus on one aspect of WPA3 that interests me personally, Opportunistic Wireless Encryption (OWE).
We also discuss the fixes that WPA3 makes to WPA2, and when we can anticipate product support.
