Default WEP and TKIP Wi-Fi encryption methods to be discontinued

From http://www.h-online.com/security/new...d-1024835.html

Quote:
The Wi-Fi Alliance (WFA) trade group tests Wi-Fi devices for their conformity with the IEEE standards and for their interoperability. The certificate ("Wi-Fi certified") issued for devices which pass the test is to ensure that devices sold by different vendors can co-operate. Over the coming three years, the outdated WEP and WPA-TKIP Wi-Fi encryption methods are to be removed from the WFA's test schedule. The IEEE standards association had already put the WEP standard, which is known to be unsafe, on its hit list in 2004 and intends to add the vulnerable TKIP standard soon.
