They’ve gone for the “AES 128-bit encryption” with an inference that their security is on a parallel with the military. It must be secure! This is a red flag to a IoT hacker though – it ignores pairing, key exchange, key sharing… and most importantly, makes no mention of authentication. Time and time again we see AES-128 used in manners that make it entirely insecure.
