Wi-Fi security improves

Thursday, 6 May 2004, 4:37 AM EST

Two key improvements for the security and performance quality of Wi-Fi devices are scheduled to reach wireless network users this year as businesses and consumers continue to adopt wireless technology in greater numbers.

The Wi-Fi Alliance will certify products for the new 802.11i and 802.11e standards by September, says Frank Hanzlik, managing director of the Wi-Fi Alliance. The 802.11i standard is the complete version of the preliminary security standard WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) introduced last year, while 802.11e is a new standard that will improve the quality of wireless networks that transmit voice and video.
