    In cryptography, the "man in the middle" is usually an attacker -- but when Keezel wants to get between you and the Wi-Fi connection in your hotel or your home, it's for your own good.

    After a long crowdfunding campaign, the company is getting ready to ship its Wi-Fi security device, also called Keezel, in October. Any orders it picks up at the IFA trade show in Berlin this week will be fulfilled from a second production run in November, said Keezel CEO Aike Muller.

    One problem Keezel aims to solve is that hotel and other public Wi-Fi services are often unencrypted, leaving your data wide open to eavesdropping by others in the area.
