This project aims to provide a means for two wireless devices to establish a shared secret key for use in shared key cryptography.
In this project, we created a series of assignments which teach secret key establishment as well as introductory probability and random processes topics.
We kept, through 2010, a list of publications in the area of wireless channel-based secret key establishment.
