Open networks are insecure by definition; they are open and therefor anyone has access. With the introduction of passwords an initial layer of protection was established. However, WPA(2) uses a single password for everyone, which means that all users are sharing the same network resources. To make matters worse; most implementations of WPA2 are vulnerable to attacks that enables a hacker to gain access to the password. Therefor a malicious person may access data or hack devices from WPA2 users without actual presence inside a building or location.
HOW WPA KIOSK WORKS
WPA Kiosk generates a unique WPA2 key for each individual user. This means that each client is shielded and protected from all other clients. Therefor the risk of unauthorized access is minimized.
There are various methods to distribute the unique keys. For example, by showing a QR code on a screen at the reception desk, printed on a booking- or reservation confirmation, an SMS text message to a mobile phone or printed at the time of self-registration.Get in touch
