Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key

Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key

(networking, security)
(WPA-PSK) A simplified but still powerful form of WPA, most suitable for home wireless networking. As with WEP, you set a static key or pass phrase, but WPA-PSK uses TKIP to automatically change the keys periodically, making it much more difficult to break the encryption.
