Boffins beef-up WiFi security

Wednesday, 5 May 2004, 3:30 PM EST

Security sits high on the WiFi development agenda this year as global adoption of the technology reaches a high.

The Wi-Fi Alliance will certify products for the new 802.11i and 802.11e standards by September, said Frank Hanzlik, managing director of the organization. The 802.11i standard is the complete version of the preliminary security standard WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) introduced last year.

With an eye on a wireless digital future, the 802.11e standard is brand new technology designed to make it feasible to transmit voice and video over such networks. This standard aims to ensure a steady connection, particularly when using video.
