Wi-Fi Alliance lays out security guidelines

Oct. 31, 2002 1:47 PM EST
NEW YORK—Wi-Fi Alliance has laid out new mechanisms for security for the technology to address concerns about possible hacking.

The specifications, known as Wireless Protected Access, covers 802.11i standard for encryption and 802.1x for access control in homes and office networks. It allows enterprise users to secure access through an authentication server, while home network users will utilize a pre-shared key mode.

The Wi-Fi Alliance, which represents major gear makers across the industry, expects the new mechanisms to take effect in February next year.

“We support the industry-wide implementation of this specification to provide increased levels of security for wireless LANs,” said David Favreau, director of wireless products for Agere Systems’ client systems group.
