Wi-Fi Pro­tected Access

Wi-Fi Pro­tected Access is a method of encryp­tion used for wire­less net­works (Wi-Fi) which in con­trast to WEP pro­vides addi­tional pro­tec­tion via a dynamic key. WPA2 is the suc­cessor of WPA, although vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties are still known for both WPA and WPA2. Because of var­ious attacks on the WPA and WPA2 process, it is prefer­able to use their suc­cessor WPA3.
