Abstract [en]

Visible Light Communication (VLC) is an emerging communication channel serving as a complement to traditional wireless communication. Visible light has many advantages over other communication channels like its inability to penetrate opaque objects. Securely sharing secret keys is a known problem in computer security. Sharing security keys using Radio Frequency (RF) communication is prone to sniffing attacks. In this paper, we introduce a system called BouKey which uses visible light to share keys. This makes BouKey immune to through the wall sniffing attacks. BouKey divides the key and shares it using multiple transmission bulbs allowing the key to be received in a specific area only. Our initial results show that the characteristics and height of the receiver, as well as the transmission angle play a key role in determining the shape and size of this area.
