There is probably much more than MAC addresses in the log file.

comment Is it fair to say that lack of client-authentication in TLS implies no requirement of non-repudiation?
"non-repudiation" of what exactly?

@Polynomial 1 is a most descriptive term than sizeof(char).

@Polynomial "that the size of the type is relevant" of which type? Why not sizeof (sometypedef)?

comment How vulnerable am I on a unencrypted public WiFi network?
WPA-Personal with a PSK shared with strangers is not very secure obviously; still, you at least get a session key, which allows encrypted unicast from/to AP. Of course, only symmetric encryption is used, based on a shared secret, so anyone could capture and decrypt the auth phase and recover the private session key. But 1) this requires some effort (more than trivial listening on open Wifi) 2) only those who captured the encrypted session key packets can do the decryption. So WPA-Personal provides some obfuscation. But you should move to Enterprise mode instead.

sizeof(char) is 1. Always. By design. By definition. Don't compute sizeof(char).

comment Can the USB standard be altered to prevent the “firmware attack”?
@nealmcb Probably, but you would first need to configure the networking device; maybe with the keyboard and pointing device included in the same USB chip?
