Re: Not Unexpected

"Someone with a reciever and fancy gear within a few metres of you, though, isn't in most people's threat models, fortunately."

"not that fancy" of gear I expect, and in theory, anyone sitting near you in a wifi hotspot. As for BTLE, I'm not sure how that's relevant for AES keys, since its speed is way slower than wifi (making it suck for any kind of networking) so why would anyone be using AES keys like that over BTLE? [ok maybe someone knows, but I don't see it]. Unless it's some kind of "log me in" authentication BTLE dongle that sends passwords or something...
