In this paper, we study some of the most common formation protocols for scatternets such as BlueTrees, BlueNet, and BlueStars. The paper focuses on security mechanisms that are needed to provide secure communication among the nodes in the scatternet. We propose a secure communication between two parties based on encryption mechanisms. In this approach secret keys are proposed for each pair. The focus of the suggested method is the scatternet communication security and in particular the secret key exchange. The paper describes a mechanism for the key agreement procedure through a secure scatternet formation protocol.
