Title: METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR AUTHENTICATING A DEVICE TO A WIRELESS NETWORK
Abstract:
Aspects of the present disclosure include methods and systems for commissioning and authenticating devices for joining a local network that improve the security of the network and make it more difficult for unauthorized devices to gain access to the network. In some examples, communication channels that have a more limited range and direction as compared to radio frequency communication are employed for exchanging information to join the network, such as cryptographic keys. The communication channels may include acoustic or optical channels. In some examples, techniques for deriving temporary and/or dynamic keys are disclosed.
