Vendors with new products that want to display the Wi-Fi certification seal, will now have to incorporate WPA2, the version of Wi-Fi Protected Access that includes the full IEEE 802.11i security spec, such as AES-CCMP encryption keys. New product support of WPA2 will force some existing product upgrades to remain competitive.

This new standard is the one to use for health care applications, especially wireless medical devices. By using this standard, embedded radios (which can't be swapped out for a radio with proprietary security) can operate on a hospital's WLAN while providing adequate security.
