IoT devices are now enriching people’s life. However, the security of IoT devices seldom attracts manufacturers’ attention. There are already some solutions to the problem of connecting a smart device to a user’s wireless network based on the 802.11 transmission such as Smart Config from TI. However, it is insecure in many situations, and it does not have a satisfactory transmission speed, which does not mean that it has a low bit rate. It usually takes a long time for the device to recognize the data it receives and decode them. In this paper, we propose a new Wi-Fi connection method based on audio waves. This method is based on MFSK (Multiple frequency-shift keying) and works well in short distance, which enables the correctness and efficiency. In addition, audio waves can hardly be eavesdropped, which provides higher security than other methods. We also put forward an encryption solution by using jamming signal, which can greatly improve the security of the transmission.
