Executive Summary

Recently, secure device pairing has had significant attention from a wide community of academic as well as industrial researchers and a plethora of schemes and protocols have been proposed, which use various forms of out-of-band exchange to form an association between two unassociated devices. These protocols and schemes have different strengths and weaknesses - often in hardware requirements, strength against various attacks or usability in particular scenarios. From ordinary user's point of view, the problem then becomes which to choose or which is the best possible scheme in a particular scenario.
