Tecnologia Li-Fi vs Wi-Fi

Li-Fi, which stands for Light Fidelity, is a wireless communication technology that, unlike Wi-Fi, uses visible or non-visible (infrared) light to transmit data and information.

LiFi communications are safer than radio communications because light cannot penetrate walls and does not generally create interference in electromagnetically sensitive environments.

 

Why is LiFi more secure?

Because it uses light waves to transmit data, it cannot be intercepted by traditional radio frequency-based hacking techniques, such as Wi-Fi “sniffing.”

This makes LiFi more secure than Wi-Fi, which can be more vulnerable to eavesdropping and hacking in the case of, for example, so-called “man in the middle.”

LiFi signals do not penetrate walls or other physical barriers, they remain confined within indoor environments making it more difficult for hackers to intercept the signal from afar. Should a hacker want to attack the network, in fact, he or she would have to place a receiver inside the line-of-sight of the LiFi transmitter.

 

LiFi ally for security

To minimize security risks, a number of measures can be taken in addition to the use of LiFi technology. For example, encryption can be used to protect data transmitted via LiFi.

This can prevent eavesdropping and ensure data confidentiality.

As with any technology, it is important to take appropriate security measures to protect against potential threats.
