A Chinese industry group, WAPI, has accused the US Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc (IEEE) - which created the standard championed by Intel - of violating ISO rules.More details over at Forbes.
WAPI and the IEEE applied to the ISO for a new international standard last October, but WAPI's application was rejected in fast track ballot in March.
China claims that IEEE broke ISO regulations when national bodies voted on new technology to fix security loopholes in the WLAN standard.
