Pairing Protocols in Wireless Standards

Kaisa Nyberg (Aalto University)

Friday 20 January 2012, 12.00, b-it bitmax

The goal of this presentation is to discuss theoretical and practical properties of most commonly used cryptographic protocols for ad hoc key agreement between wireless devices, commonly also called as pairing protocols. Such protocols can be divided into three main types depending on the information exchanged over a secure ad hoc channel: numeric comparison, one-time passkey, and fixed passkey. Each type gives different security guarantees and sets different requirements to the implementation.

Discussion afterwards.
