3 out of 5 eggs AES? I think not? 02/01/2014

This review is from: TRENDnet TPL-308E2K Powerline 200 AV Nano Adapter Kit Up to 200Mbps

Pros:

Small low profile and easy to use devices. They seem to have a pretty long range too. I only seem to get 79 Mb/s through them though. Another funny thing is: I have a NETGEAR Powerline AV 200. I forgot to unplug it before putting one of these things in. It synced up with the NETGEAR Nano Adapter and the Netgear main adapter.

Overall, Simple and easy to use.

Cons:

As far as I know, the NETGEAR does not have any encryption and I've tested that.

Using my knowledge of cryptography, I hooked up both TRENDnet devices into an isolated power unit. I hooked up my 303 Device to monitor the powerline network. The network was unencrypted and easy to MiM attack.

Sadly, this is not AES Encrypted as suggested. I will not be using these powerline adapters to send sensitive info through.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi William,

Thank you for sharing this with us. If TPL-303E is used to sync and monitor the powerline network the traffic would appear unencrypted because the traffic would already be de-encrypted by the TPL-303E. Are you able to take any sniffer trace(s) directly from the wire? I will be more than happy to fix it if AES encryption is not supported . Please email me directly at adrian@trendnet.com with “Newegg TPL-308E2K review” in the subject line and I will contact you immediately to clarify. I hope to hear from you soon.

Warmest regards,

Adrian
