In this thesis we have built a key-establishment protocol which takes advantage of a resource : time. When two devices spends a pre-determined, mostly uninterrupted time interval with each other they would be able to establish a key. However it is not just the quantity of time but also the quality which matters. The information gained about the key with time by the legitimate party can is flexible and can be chosen by the user. We have analyzed our protocol thoroughly and discussed the circumstances an adversary can gain access to information about the key.
