Falling through the KRACKs – A Few Thoughts on Cryptographic Engineering
The WPA2 WiFi protocol was written years ago and was written years ago and was"proved" secure, yet a flaw was just found. Why? Blame IEEE for making the standards hard to access and poorly written; and the proof was done on two pieces in isolation instead of the whole system or better yet the actual code.
