How the KRACK attack destroys WiFi Security

The University of Huddersfield asked me to write an article regarding the recent KRACK Attack.
“Once there was the assumption that if you followed the rules, encrypted your data, password protected your information and secured your internet connection your information would be somewhat safe online. Now in the recent spate of cybersecurity issues, the KRACK attack has sent the tech industry into a frenzy. Almost all wireless devices using Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2) are to some extent exposed and vulnerable in the case of an attack. This protocol vulnerability in WPA2 encryption was recently disclosed by imec-DistriNet researcher Mathy Vanhoef. “
The full article was posted on the 23rd of October 2017 and can be found on the University of Huddersfield’s academic blog.
