1 Answer 1


The articles I'm reading echo J Modi's point. For instance:

WPA3 also contains a 192-bit security suite, aligned with the Commercial National Security Algorithm (CNSA) Suite from the Committee on National Security Systems, to help protect government and other secured networks, the Wi-Fi Alliance said.

Computer scientist Mathy Vanhoef thinks the

feature [that] will strengthen user privacy in open networks through individualized data encryption [may refer to] Opportunistic Wireless Encryption: encryption without authentication. See https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc8110
