PTK Rotation in WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK

Posts: n/a

I made researches about how WPA-PSK (using TKIP) and WPA2-PSK (using AES)
are working. What I learned is that both produce a PMK (Pairwise Master Key)
and a PTK (Pairwise Transient Key). This latter key is produced using, in
part, the PMK, the MAC address of both communicating systems, and random

Then, from what I understand, the AES is more secure because the seed
used to generate the random values for the production of the PTK renewals is
changed more often than the seed in TKIP.

Is that making sense?

If yes, how often this seed is changed in the AES compared to the TKIP?

Thanks for having taken the time to read.
