    The Wi-Fi Alliance announced the WPA3 standard officially on Monday. The new wireless network security standard will replace WPA2 eventually.

    WPA2, which stands for Wi-Fi Protected Access 2, is the current security standard for wireless networks.

    Practically any device — smartphones, routers, laptops, IoT devices — with wireless connectivity supports the nearly 2-decade old standard. Security researchers discovered a vulnerability in WPA in October 2017. KRACK, Key Reinstallation Attacks, works against all WPA2 protected Wi-Fi networks and can be abused to steal sensitive information and other data.
