A great deal of the information we consume and produce every day goes over wireless networks, especially Wi-Fi, which makes securing these transmissions of constant importance. To that end, the Wi-Fi Alliance has announced some of the new capabilities that will emerge this year as part of WPA3.

While WPA2 has been widely successful, is still being developed, and will continue to be deployed in future devices, WPA3 is going to bring new protections and features. Among these are means to ensure security for simple passwords and making it easier for devices with small or no display interface to connect. Individualized encryption is another feature that will strengthen privacy even on open networks and we will also see a 192-bit security suite created to protect networks with high security requirements.
