Abstract: In the last few years with the increasing popularity of the Bluetooth Technology (BT) also the interest in robbing the personal information has arisen. Bluetooth is a connection oriented service. To communicate with one another, one of them needs to initiate the connection. In July 2007, Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) introduces a new method called Simple Secure Pairing (SSP). It uses Visual Number Confirmation (VNC) to meet the highest security requirements. If a malicious intruder error occurs while performing Visual Number Confirmation (VNC) verification then security could be violated. This study introduces a novel Visual Image Confirmation (VIC) protocol uses Visual Cryptography (VC) to address this problem. The proposed VIC protocol not only secures the data transmission but also increases operational efficiency.
