KRACK attack threatens Wi-Fi Enterprise Security

Posted by Babar Hashim on 2017-10-17 17:51:59

Wi-Fi Enterprise Security is critical to Silex as we strive to provide secure, reliable and robust wireless connectivity solutions to our customers. We want to assure our customers that we are well aware of the recent KRACK attack threat to WPA2 Wi-Fi security, and we will be providing a solution imminently. 

Recently published research in below references have identified vulnerabilities in some Wi-Fi devices. Those devices reinstall network encryption keys under certain conditions, disabling replay protection and significantly reducing the security of encryption. This security vulnerability is inherent to the WPA2 protocol itself, and in principle impacts all products using the WPA security supplicant.
