Ad-hoc interactions between devices over wireless networks present a security problem: the generation of shared secrets to initialize secure communication over a medium that is inherently vulnerable to various attacks. However, these scenarios also offer the potential for physical security of spaces and the use of protocols in which users must visibly demonstrate their involvement to generate an association. The various protocols have different strengths and weaknesses, which make them suitable in different situations. The problem then becomes which to choose. In this chapter we survey the security challenges and some of these protocols, which use various forms of out-of-band exchange to form an association.
