BEEFDECADE

great 40-bit wep key, or greatest 40-bit wep key?

my toot over on twitter appears to be the first-and-only googleable result for BEEFDECADE. in my humble opinion, it’s the 0xDEADBEEF of the short-lived 40-bit generation.

other contenders:
BEEFFACADE
BADABBAFAB
BEAFABBEEF
AFADEDFAD

why did i need an easily-rememberable 40-bit wep key, you might ask? because i got the extremely shit-hot WMWifiRouter application that makes my cellphone turn into a 3g-backed wifi hotspot. we’ll see if i can use that to get myself in trouble or not.
