Organizations and network developers continuously exert much money and efforts to secure wireless transmission. WPA2 framework is widely deployed for Wi-Fi communications since it is efficient and secure against several wireless attacks. However, WPA2 security has been lately threatened by advanced developed versions of wireless attacks. The increase of computer processing power, continuous efforts by penetration testers, network evaluators and researchers led to the emerging of new advanced attacking techniques that may exploit WPA2 wireless systems detected vulnerabilities. In this paper, we shed the light on the newly emerged attacks conducting practical tests to evaluate WPA2 security through a prototype of WPA2/EAP-TTLS implementation. This evaluation comes out with recommendations and guidelines for protecting wireless enterprise communication. © 2017 IEEE.
