*Architecturally* I am angling toward code impact.  Is there a fundamental 
issue with TLS-PSK or is it just EAP-TLS-PSK?  This is a matter of how one 
would want to address the problem in OpenSSL/GNUTLS/TinySSL/WolfSSL and what 
the calling interfaces should be.

I want to stress again: whether it’s PSK or public key is conceptually not that 
different here.  There is some potential theft protection in public key 
mechanisms, but only if a real TEE is used.  We’re not seeing that as much as 
we would like yet, but it may make sense to aim in that direction.

Thus one potential outcome of this discussion is: PSK is just bad, and never 
use it, regardless of EAP or other.  Another potential outcome is the opposite. 
 And then there are some states in between.
