I know that both attacks are based on the fact that the cipher used for communication is block cipher with CBC mode of operation and that is vulnerable because of predictable IV. Furthermore the original paper of POODLE claims that
"Unlike with the BEAST [BEAST] and Lucky 13 [Lucky13] attacks, there is no reasonable workaround."
But openssl library seems to have implemented some mitigation technique known as 0/n split(to be fair I did not understand how that works either) and that seems to mitigate POODLE as well as BEAST. Then why research paper claims so?
