I¹ve posted a summary of the ³PKEX² protocol and it¹s background:


The presentation provides an overview of the protocol and details of the
O(sqrt(N)) off-line attack and the MiTM attack.

Any productive comments and would be greatly appreciated. Please do let me
know me know if you identify significant errors or omissions.

Note - the PKEX protocol was removed from IEEE 802.11ai last week.
