Don’t Worry About KRACK – Lawfare

KRACK–the vulnerability in the WPA2 security protocol proven this morning–is an interesting and amusing vulnerability from a technical standpoint and a great lesson in how our computer security is “dancing madly on the lip of a volcano”. It demonstrates a sober lesson for cybersecurity policy, showing just how tough seemingly “simple” security problems can be and how wide-reaching flaws can last unnoticed for years. But don’t buy into the hype: KRACK is a non-issue for the typical Lawfare reader’s day-to-day life.
