DOWNLOADIn the new Windows 10 SDK Preview found signs of support for the current standard of wireless security WPA3.

In the future, updating the function of Windows 10, which is known under the code name 19H1, most likely will support the new wireless security standard WPA3.

Microsoft has not yet released an official statement about this, the new Windows 10 SDK Preview for build 18272 already includes code that indirectly indicates support for WPA3.

As stated by the Wi-Fi Alliance, in Enterprise mode, WPA3 will offer the “equivalent” of 192-bit cryptographic security.

Adding support for the new protocol in Windows 10 will mean that devices running this OS will get all the benefits of using new security technology for enhanced protection against cyber threats.

The technical release of WPA3 took place last year. WPA3 is the most advanced security standard for wireless Wi-Fi networks, including protection against brute-force attacks (brute force) on the network. Since the end of July, the Wi-Fi Alliance (Ethernet Wireless Compatibility Alliance) has begun to certify WPA3 devices for home users.

The development of Windows 10 19H1 (1809) continues, and the first builds of the Insider Preview system are delivered to participants of the preliminary assessment program on the Early Access channel. Insiders of the “Late Access” and “Release Preview” channels still deal with the builds of the fall feature update of Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809), which was suspended by Microsoft after a fatal error was detected.

The launch of Windows 10 19H1 is scheduled for spring 2019. If the standard Microsoft release schedule is followed, the update will be completed in March, and available to a wide audience in April.
