An article by Marc, Editor at IoT Business News. If there’s one thing we have learned about IoT in the past, it’s that the predictions of its size are not to be trusted.

Key Reinstallation Attacks

Breaking WPA2 by forcing nonce reuse Discovered by Mathy Vanhoef of imec-DistriNet, KU Leuven Serious weaknesses discovered in WPA2, a protocol that secures all modern protected Wi-Fi networks.
