Most device manufacturers could take months to get their new routers and networking devices certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance to support WPA3. Meanwhile, technology providers have already started working on software and firmware updates to support the new WPA3 standard, including Microsoft. WPA3-Personal (SAE) Support in Windows 10 Though Microsoft hasn't yet officially announced WPA3 support for its Windows 10 operating system, new APIs introduced in the newly released Windows 10 SDK Preview build 18272 , as ma
