Apple released patches for macOS and iPhone 8 and older in November with older iPhones reportedly not vulnerable as Apple misimplemented the WPA2
Likewise, VPN connections - which you should already be using - will continue to protect your corporate data even if your WPA2
connection is compromised.
It's not specific to any specific piece of hardware or device-it's a flaw in the WPA2
Security is also addressed with WPA2
. All connections are secured with WPA2-Enterprise, which provides a level of security comparable to that of cellular networks.
Companies with wireless network deployments that use WPA2
Enterprise security with MS-CHAPv2 authentication should also switch to an alternative.
There are several encryption methods for wireless settings, including WEP, WPA (WPA-Personal), and WPA2
(Wi-Fi Protected Access version 2).
If you have to type in a password, and you have a choice between a WEP or WPA/WPA2-type passkey, choose the newer and more secure WPA or WPA2
. WEP can easily be cracked, so avoid communicating anything sensitive here, too, if possible.
Other topics discussed include viruses, wireless network encryption with WPA2
and web browser security.
* To maintain a secure connection, the gateway uses the 802.11i (WPA2
) standard with 128-bit AES encryption to protect the WLAN data.
A researcher from leading wireless security firm Airtight Networks has uncovered a flaw in the Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2
It falls far short, however, of WPA2
, which requires a form of Advanced Encryption Standard.
