Connecting Devices

Connect once and secure

Connecting a device to a personal profile means making the profile the trusted source for all configuration settings, credentials, etc. required to access information in the user's personal digital environment.

The two serious security error a users of the Mesh could make is to allow the wrong device to connect to their profile or connect a device to the wrong profile.

The Mesh mitigates these risks as follows:

  • The ability to connect devices is limited to administration devices.
  • The connection protocols require strong mutual authentication.

Requesting generation of a PIN code

Making a connection request
