Until the physical layer and protocols are trustworthy and auditable nothing can be trusted.

Assuring authenticity has to be built into the physical layer.

Cryptography works until it is broken, then we move on to a longer key or different cypher.

Everything added to try and create trust is only a bandaid over a broken system.
