Quoted with permission:
"Nothing better than the history of TLS to show that one better take seriously attacks that seem theoretical at first glance."
-- Hugo Krawczyk <hugo at ee.technion.ac.il>

Summarized from a public talk by Kenny Patterson:
                Academics have woken up to the importance of TLS, it gets more attention, begets more research and attacks; this is a virtuous cycle. In pragmatic terms, you'll standardize it and then we'll try to break it.
