"Wi-Fi Protected Setup" Program Slated for Q4

The Wi-Fi Alliance today announced "Wi-Fi Protected Setup" as the name for its upcoming consumer ease-of-use program, formerly code named "Wi-Fi Simple Config." Slated for launch in Q4 of this year, the program is planned as an optional certification based on a standardized method for security setup in home Wi-Fi networks.

The Wi-Fi Protected Setup certification will join the portfolio of certifications available to Wi-Fi Alliance members that manufacture a wide variety of devices, ranging from PCs and printers to televisions, cameras, and gaming consoles.
