Photon won't connect and blinks Cyan

I have a Photon that I can’t connect to WiFi. When I power up the Photon I am getting a fast blinking cyan light with an occasional red blink. I took a video of it here: If I try to configure the Photon using the CLI and “particle setup” it just loops “Obtaining device information…” after putting the WiFi information. If I configure WiFi using “particle serial wifi” it just reboots and goes back to same condition as the video.

This issue can be found by searching the forum for "red burst" or “orange burst”.

It has to do with damaged encryption keys

I did see those, but I missed the part about flashing the public key to the Photon. That fixed it.
