    The IPFire 2.25 Core Update 153 release brings WPA3 support to the hardened open-source firewall Linux distro - making Wi-Fi safe again for IPFire users.

     

    The biggest change in the IPFire 2.25 Core Update 153 release is the implementation of support for the latest WPA3 security standard for Wi-Fi networks. WPA3 is now supported by default in IPFire and can be enabled alongside WPA2 to support as many devices as possible while keeping your wireless network secure.

    In addition to enabling WPA3 support, IPFire users can also enable the 802.11w standard, also known as Management Frame Protection for an extra layer of security, hardening your Wi-Fi network against attackers who try to de-authenticate stations.
