Wired News has an interesting article about researchers who are applying genomics to cracking proprietary protocols and perhaps even examining them for security flaws. The researcher behind this is Marshall Beddoe, and he calls the approach “Protocol Informatics.”

Learn more about the Protocol Informatics Project at Beddoe’s website.

You can also view his presentation.
