WPA crack

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Nov 7, 2008.

  1. Just a note that the WPA vulnerability recently discovered only applies if
    you use TKIP encryption. If you stick with AES (support for which is
    mandatory in WPA2), you should still be safe.

    AES is a very strong cipher. TKIP was only ever intended as an interim
    measure, because it was primarily designed to be easily implementable (with
    a firmware upgrade) on the same hardware that was already running WEP,
    which was known to be crap.
