Missing support for integrity check

Description

If a protocol does not include integrity checks ("checksums"), we cannot determine whether or not an attacker has interfered or manipulated the transmitted data (man-in-the-middle attack).

Remediations

✅ Use encryption schemes that provide integrity

  Cipher c = Cipher.getInstance("AES/GCM/PKCS5Padding");
