The recent key reinstallation attacks (KRACK) against the WPA2 protocol revealed how an adversary can easily eavesdrop, and in some cases
tamper, a Wi-Fi connection secured by the WPA2 protocol. At the same
time, Wi-Fi automatic association attacks achieve a similar result
(man-in-the-middle position) not by attacking the WPA2 protocol directly
but by enforcing Wi-Fi clients to join a rogue Access Point.
