It is time to deprecate and replace Wi-Fi (un)Protected Setup!

The Wi-Fi industry has had a long history of continuous improvement of Wi-Fi's security features (WEP to WPA to WPA2 to WPA3), with only the occasional hiccup on the way. Wi-Fi Protected Setup represents one such hiccup. It is now time to put a plan in place to deprecate and replace Wi-Fi Protected Setup in the 2.4/5 GHz bands, and avoid any use in the greenfield, 6 GHz band!
