What is WPA3, why does it matter, and when can you expect it?

WPA, an acronym for Wi-Fi Protected Access, authenticates devices with a pre-shared cryptographic cipher using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) protocol. Specifically, it employs a four-way handshake to prevent eavesdroppers from snooping on traffic passing between a Wi-Fi access point (like a router) and a Wi-Fi client (like a smartphone or laptop). Encryption prevents man-in-the-middle attacks that attempt to intercept data in transfer. – Kyle Wiggers, VentureBeat https://ift.tt/2Ivz32e
