What is secure Wi -fi solution and do I need it?


Recommended Posts

I've been approached recently by a specialists from this company  and been told that WI fi for any company which is involved in money transactions should be provided with SECURED wi-fi solutions

THE QUESTION - does a regular real estate agency require it, and how secure WI fi is different from a regular? Thanks

All are the same for me , but the differences is the hardware and the software installed on it , but for a secure WIFI you probably need it to be WPA2 with some good encryption algorithm or if your devices support WPA3 then to be WPA3

You can have some IPS/IDS systems in your network so it could detect some kind of not good traffic coming from some kind of devices for extra security , and for devices that are connected to wifi for transactions , you can hide their wifi name and make a good password so it could be protected well against any kind of attacks or brute-forcing the password to get entry.

Thanks, mate.

So it seems like he has some clew. But I thought wi-fi passwording is a default function in every wi-fi, isn't it?

Yes mate it's available in every device that works as WI-FI Access Point , it will give you the ability to password it with the available ways (WPA,2,3) and encryption types (depends on the models of every router)

Usually a firmware like OPENWRT brings lot and lot of things to your router even it's an old junk box

for example WPA2 can be cracked through some exploit , if your router isn't patched and protected against that exploit then someone can exploit it and do malicious things to your network.

WPA3 in the same time , still not supported by all devices everywhere as it's still 'new' somehow.
