WPA3

Aruba Instant 8.4.0.0 supports WPA3 security improvements that include:

Simultaneous Authentication of Equals (SAE)—Replaces WPA2Wi-Fi Protected Access 2. WPA2 is a certification program maintained by IEEE that oversees standards for security over wireless networks. WPA2 supports IEEE 802.1X/EAP authentication or PSK technology, but includes advanced encryption mechanism using CCMP that is referred to as AES.-PSKPre-shared key. A unique shared secret that was previously shared between two parties by using a secure channel. This is used with WPA security, which requires the owner of a network to provide a passphrase to users for network access. with password-based authentication that is resistant to dictionary attacks.

WPA3-Enterprise 192-Bit Mode—Brings Suite-B 192-bit security suite that is aligned with Commercial National Security Algorithm (CNSA) for enterprise network. SAE-based keys are not based on PSKPre-shared key. A unique shared secret that was previously shared between two parties by using a secure channel. This is used with WPA security, which requires the owner of a network to provide a passphrase to users for network access. and are therefore pairwise and unique between clients and the AP. Suite B restricts the deployment to one of two options:

128-bit security

192-bit security without the ability to mix-and-match ciphers, Diffie-Hellman groups, hash functions, and signature modes
