    16181618Many of the bluetooth services can expose private data or allow control of a device, therefore for security reasons it is desired to securely pair devices in a fashion that doesn't make it too difficult to use conveniently.

    1620 Bluetooth uses a process called '''bonding''' where a bond is generated through a process called '''pairing'''. Paring is triggered either by a specific request or triggered automatically when connecting to a service for the first time. There is usually some form of user interaction to confirm the identify of the devices but once pairing is complete a bond will have been formed between the two devices, enabling them to connect to each other in the future without requiring the pairing process again. If desired the bonding relationship can later be removed by the user which would force a pairing to be completed again.

    16221622You can also tell your controller to specifically trust a device based on its MAC address which eliminates the need for pairing. It is the controller that decides to pair or trust a device, not the device itself.
