Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Wi-Fi Protected Setup is a computing standard that attempts to allow easy establishment of a secure wireless home network, but has been shown to easily fall to brute-force attacks. Created by the Wi-Fi Alliance and introduced in 2007, the goal of the protocol is to allow home users who know little of wireless security and may be intimidated by the available security options to set up the encryption method WPA2, as well as making it easy to add new devices to an existing network without entering long passphrases. Prior to the standard, several competing solutions were developed by different vendors to address the same need, including Broadcom's SecureEasySetup, Buffalo's AOSS, Atheros' JumpStart, Intel's Smart Wireless Technology, and Microsoft's Windows Connect Now.show more
