New WPA3 security protocol simplifies logins, secures IoT

Securing Wi-Fi access has long been an Achilles’ heel for users of wireless networks — especially for users of public networks, as well as for internet of things devices — but help is on the way.

Wi-Fi Alliance, the nonprofit industry group that promotes use of Wi-Fi, has begun certifying products supporting the latest version of its security protocol, the Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) specification, WPA3.

The new WPA3 security protocol is intended to simplify wireless authentication, especially for IoT devices, while at the same time improving security through the inclusion of new features and removal of legacy cryptographic and security protocols.

The WPA3 security protocol, announced in January, gives enterprises and individuals a better option for securing access to Wi-Fi networks. Support for WPA2 continues to be mandatory for all products in the Wi-Fi Alliance’s “Wi-Fi Certified” program, but the new WPA3 security protocol adds new capabilities for improved security, including stronger encryption and a more secure handshake.

In its press release, Wi-Fi Alliance wrote that the WPA3 security protocol “adds new features to simplify Wi-Fi security, enable more robust authentication, and deliver increased cryptographic strength for highly sensitive data markets.”

The new specification defines both an enterprise option, WPA3-Enterprise, which offers enterprises the “equivalent of 192-bit cryptographic strength,” to protect networks that transmit sensitive data; and an individual option, WPA3-Personal, which offers password-based authentication that can be more resilient against attacks even when “users choose passwords that fall short of typical complexity recommendations,” by using a secure key setup protocol, Simultaneous Authentication of Equals (SAE), to protect against attempts by malicious actors trying to guess passwords.

Wi-Fi Alliance also rolled out Wi-Fi Certified Easy Connect, an initiative for simplifying the secure initialization and configuration of wireless internet of things devices that have little or no display interfaces. The new program permits users to add devices to Wi-Fi networks with a different device — like a smartphone — that can scan a product quick response (QR) code.

Support for the new protocol will be made available as vendors begin incorporating it into their products. Wi-Fi Alliance members that plan to support the WPA3 security protocol include Cisco, Broadcom, Huawei Wireless, Intel and Qualcomm. A Wi-Fi Alliance spokesperson said by email that “Wi-Fi Alliance expects broad industry adoption of WPA3 by late 2019 in conjunction with the next generation of Wi-Fi based on 802.11ax standard.”

Aruba taps ClearPass, Central for SD-Branch management

Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, has unveiled software-based wired and wireless networking for the branch that includes a cloud-managed software-defined WAN.

This week, Aruba introduced the software-defined branch technology at the HPE Discover conference in Las Vegas. The latest product, which comprises software and hardware, operates in conjunction with the Aruba Central cloud-based management platform and the Aruba ClearPass policy manager for network access control.

Combined with Aruba access points and switches, the system provides everything a customer needs to run a LAN and an SD-WAN. The latter is for routing traffic to and from the corporate data center, IoT devices and SaaS and IaaS applications. IoT devices could include surveillance cameras, point-of-sale systems, and air conditioning and heating systems.

Aruba’s offering is best-suited for smaller enterprises with a wireless-first strategy in the branch, said Will Townsend, an analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy, based in Austin, Texas. “When you look at SD-Branch and look at what Aruba is doing, it’s going to be ideally suited for a greenfield deployment — with mobile the trick — and a small to midmarket-type profile of the customer.”

SD-Branch
Aruba SD-Branch components

SD-Branch is a recent concept. The approach simplifies networking by using one device for multiple services, such as routing and firewalls. Aruba’s multi-function device is a gateway appliance a customer would deploy on each site.

The device includes an SD-WAN that routes traffic across the branch’s various links, including MPLS, LTE and broadband. The hardware also executes ClearPass access policies for individuals, groups of people, desktops and mobile and IoT devices. IT staff create the policies that define the available infrastructure, applications and data.

“We’re collapsing that SD-WAN functionality into the gateway and now the gateway becomes the central point of policy enforcement within the branch,” said Lissa Hollinger, a vice president of product and solutions marketing at Aruba.

Aruba Central oversees the SD-WAN, as well as the branch’s access points (APs), switches and routers. The cloud-based application also stores reusable configuration templates for gateways, APs and switches. Central uses the ClearPass-generated templates to automatically provision new devices.

Other components of the Aruba system include a headend gateway at the corporate data center that creates an IPsec tunnel to each branch. The device also has a firewall with essential features for bidirectional filtering of data center traffic.

For customers that want more security, Aruba provides the option of integrating the branch gateway with cloud-based firewalls from Check Point Software Technologies, Palo Alto Networks and Zscaler.

“The integration of [data protection] for WAN services and ClearPass for policy management makes this a competitive offering in the marketplace,” said Mark Hung, an analyst at Gartner.

To lessen the workload of IT staff, Aruba offers a mobile installer app. When a gateway, switch or AP arrives at a branch office, a nontechnical person can scan its barcode with the app to ensure the device is for that location. The process avoids getting hardware that isn’t registered to download the preset configurations for that branch.

Primary users of LANs built with Aruba technology include businesses within the retail, hospitality and healthcare industries. Aruba’s largest enterprise customers typically have an IT staff of less than a dozen people managing from 2,500 to 3,000 branch offices, according to Hollinger. 

Aruba sells the SD-Branch technology as part of Aruba Central. The gateways have a starting price of $1,495, plus an annual subscription of $450. Aruba plans to release the technology in July.

Lifesize looks to make outfitting huddle rooms cheaper

Lifesize this week released a device for wireless screen sharing and previewed a software-based video conferencing room kit. The products should appeal to businesses looking for relatively cheap ways to add collaboration technology to huddle rooms.

Companies can plug Lifesize Share into any monitor with an HDMI port, including the video conferencing systems of third-party providers. The device lets users wirelessly share files, individual browser tabs or their computer screens. It also syncs with cellphones.

Users can manage all of the Lifesize Share displays through an online portal, which is accessible via a customizable URL. Lifesize, meanwhile, keeps the software of the Share devices updated via the cloud. The devices could be particularly useful in huddle rooms, which often lack the more expensive equipment found in large conference rooms.

“Really, it’s about keeping it simple for users when they bring their own device into the room,” said Rob Arnold, an analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “This alleviates that physical connection problem.”

Cisco released a similar product last month, Cisco Webex Share, which is expected to become available this fall. Dozens of other products for sharing content wirelessly from PCs and mobile devices are already on the market — perhaps the best-selling among them being Barco ClickShare, Arnold said. Despite the number of available products, demand for more options is growing.

Businesses often cite “content” as the second most important aspect of a meeting, behind audio and above video, Arnold said. “Some rooms don’t really need video, but you need content, and you need audio.”

The ability to manage Lifesize Share devices from an online portal could help the product stand out, said Ira Weinstein, managing partner of Recon Research Inc., based in Coral Springs, Fla.

“It’s a lower-cost device with some of the features of some of the more expensive platforms,” Weinstein said. Lifesize Share costs $499, which includes a two-year subscription and warranty.

Lifesize meeting room kit targets huddle rooms

The Lifesize meeting room kit, called Dash, lets businesses turn meeting rooms into resources people can reserve through calendaring software and manage using an Android or iOS tablet left in the room. The software application that facilitates the connection runs on a Chromebox.

The vendor plans to demo its meeting room kit at the InfoComm conference in Las Vegas next week. The platform competes against similar products available from web conferencing vendors, including Zoom and BlueJeans.

Lifesize is known for its Icon series video conferencing cameras and conference phones. However, many businesses can’t afford to purchase those endpoints for all of their huddle rooms. Therefore, Lifesize hopes Dash appeals to existing customers as a lower-cost alternative.

Lifesize released a cloud-based web conferencing platform four years ago to replace its on-premises video conferencing servers. The announcements of Dash and Share this week are the vendor’s latest attempts to pivot toward a business model based on the sale of software and services that complement its hardware.

“This is a way for taking an existing Lifesize customer and making it more cost-effective for them to scale,” Weinstein said of Dash. “And I think it’s a great way to drop the overall cost of people who are considering getting further into video, but have found it cost-prohibitive.”
