Secure Pairing enables two devices, which share no
prior context with each other, to agree upon a security association
that they can use to protect their subsequent communication.
Secure pairing offers guarantees of the association partner
identity and it should be resistant to eavesdropping or to a
man-in-the-middle attack. We propose a user friendly solution
to this problem. Keys extracted from biometric data of the
participants are used for authentication. Details of the pairing
protocol are presented along with a discussion of the security
features, experimental validation with face recognition data and
results of the usability analysis survey.
