Abstract: Wireless networks are used in all sorts of fields and, as we will see in this paper, are widely integrated into society. Their safety is a fundamental factor for their success. Users are now increasingly concerned about the attacks they may suffer on their wireless networks. The methodology of the work is a practical and theoretical combination. Initially, the necessary concepts are exposed to later understand the details of the different security standards, vulnerabilities and attacks. Currently, there are different means to establish security measures in Wi-Fi networks, however they have had to be updated continuously, as security problems were detected. In this work, we analyze the basic concepts of running Wi-Fi networks, to then expose the security standards, the most common attacks, we will investigate the different mechanisms that exist to protect the wireless networks. It will be analyzed the new WPA3 standard and the improvements it brings, as well as analyzing the latest discovered vulnerabilities that affect the WPA standard. Which have given way to attacks type KRACK and Evil Twin using Linset. Finally, the reader will be able to find some conclusions and a proposal for future work.
