[802SEC] IEEE802/IETF Privacy Trials Media Coverage

Dear all,


After the IEEE 802 / IETF Privacy trials Press Release was issued by IEEE there has been strong interest from different media on the subject and a number of reports have been published. I know there are at least a couple more to be published shortly, but so far these are the ones that I’m aware of:
