ANet is a nonprofit dedicated to the premise that every child in America deserves an excellent education and the opportunities it provides. We pursue our vision of educational equality in America by helping schools boost student learning with great teaching that is grounded in standards, informed by data, and built on the successful practices of educators around the country.

ANet blog

As a mission-driven nonprofit organization, our primary concern is helping ensure equitable opportunity for all students.

Working alongside schools, we’ve learned that great teaching is grounded in standards, data, and insights shared among educators. We believe a blog can help us make a difference by spreading the ideas and effective practices of educators we work with.

We’re proud of the expertise our team has built over our ten years, and we'll be featuring contributions from ANetters across the org on topics in which they’ve immersed themselves.

Help us spread opportunity for all students: please share posts that you find valuable with your colleagues. And please add your thoughts in the comments: we would love this blog to facilitate knowledge-sharing in all directions.

ANet responds to wifi security reports

Jeff Odell

On Oct 16th, 2017 a security vulnerability was reported in the WPA2 wireless protocol, used commonly worldwide to protect wifi networks (See Wired.com, Forbes). A third party within wifi range could potentially “eavesdrop” on a wireless signal and, if the data being transmitted on that signal is not encrypted itself, data and passwords could be compromised. In some instances, users could be redirected to to a malicious site.

If a wireless network is compromised due to the WPA2 vulnerability, ANet data and related passwords will continue to be secure. All ANet products fully leverage the TLS 1.2 cryptographic protocol, ensuring a private connection between our servers and anyone accessing our sites.

ANet takes the security of student and school data very seriously, and we fully acknowledge the trust our schools partners put in us to keep their data safe.

We will continue to monitor any updates regarding this specific security vulnerability as well as any future potential security issues as they relate to our services to schools. As general guidance, we always recommend our school partners keep their hardware, software, and operating systems up to date and use the latest web browser versions available.

If you have any further questions or concerns regarding this issue, please e-mail help@achievementnetwork.org.
