Abstract Seamless device pairing conditioned on the context of use fosters novel application domains and ease of use. Examples are automatic device pairings with objects interacted with, such as instrumented shopping baskets, electronic tourist guides (e.g. tablets), fitness trackers or other fitness equipment. We propose a cryptographically secure spontaneous authentication scheme, BANDANA, that exploits correlation in acceleration sequences from devices worn or carried together by the same person to extract always-fresh secure secrets. On two real world datasets with 15 and 482 subjects, \BANDANA\ generated fingerprints achieved intra- (50%) and inter-body ( > 75 % ) similarity sufficient for secure key generation via fuzzy cryptography. Using \BCH\ codes, best results are achieved with 48 bit fingerprints from 12 gait cycles generating 16 bit long keys. Statistical bias of the generated fingerprints has been evaluated as well as vulnerabilities towards relevant attack scenarios.
