Wi-Fi Alliance urges users to use WPA2

Wi-Fi Alliance has launched a campaign to urge consumers to configure routers and devices with WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) in its wireless Wi-Fi equipment.

"The security of Wi-Fi has evolved in recent years and WP2, is the latest and greatest guarantee in Wi-Fi security," said Kelly Davis-Kelner of Wi-Fi Alliance in an interview.

WPA2 is available on all products that the company has labeled "Wi-Fi Certified." This standard replaces the original WPA security and has better security than WPA and other protocols, including WEP (Wired Equivalent Protocol). WEP encryption was introduced in 1997 and was largely supplanted by WPA and WPA2.
