Professor David Wagner

Wireless Security




I will speak on lessons from wireless security. What went wrong with 802.11 security? What does the future hold? How could these problems have been avoided with the theory of provable security, and what lessons can we draw from the experience?

This is joint work with Nikita Borisov and Ian Goldberg.
