WPA Cracked

WPA Cracked

A German graduate student found an exploit using a modified version of the existing attack on Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) to provide a slim vector for sending arbitrary data to networks that use the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP). This attack is now known as the Tews/Beck Method.

If you’re using WPA-TKIP, there’s a simple solution: use AES.

Am i just lucky i always choose AES over TKIP? Anyway, I can’t remember where i read it first. But you can read more at Ars Technica.

Terms:
TKIP – Temporal Key Integrity Protocol
AES – Advanced Encryption System
