7) WPA

 

If our network turned out to use WPA, we’re in luck – our network is already relatively secure provided we have used a good password to generate the WPA PSK (pairwise master key). How difficult is it to get the password if we used a poor password though?

Our network is still subject to dictionary attacks (a brute force method) so if we have not chosen an appropriate password, our security can still be breached.

  1. There are reports emerging that WPA with TKIP (not AES) has been partially cracked – the crack is not yet public however
