WPA Security Encryption can be Penetrated

Encryption WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) should be tough right? However, Japanese scientists had only takes 60 seconds to penetrate the WPA encryption used in wireless router. Note this time brought down the previous record for 15 minutes. Toshihiro Ohigashi from Hiroshima University and Masakatu Morii of Kobe University will reveal how they do over at a conference in Hiroshima 25 September next. This inroad is not given full control of Wi-Fi connection, but allows the reading and spoofing packets.

But the ease of penetrate WPA encryption TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) to make that anyone who cares about security should start thinking to move to WPA2 with AES encryption (Advanced Encryption Standard) which is more secure. The attack was carried out on a PC and Wi-Fi Access Point that were located far enough away so that the two devices see each other indirectly. Computer attacks carried out between them by acting as a relay using the correct checksum to trick the network. The good news, until now WPA2 with AES encryption newer remain safe from attacks by hackers.
