Hi, Thank you, Geoff, for your kind words and for acknowledging my work and Paul's. This is very much appreciated! In truth, I first thought this was basically the same attack that I published and I have to admit I was somewhat pissed about it. But the authors of the NXNSAttack mention mine in their paper and explain how they differ, and I believe their analysis is fair. At any rate, even if it was the same attack, rediscovering an attack that is still applicable is still a valid finding. I did something quite similar with the attack leveraging RRL to make Kaminsky's attack still somewhat practical again, in 2013, and I don't think I was stealing Dan's work either. Thus, I would like to thank the authors of the NXNSAttack for their original research, and for citing my work too.
