In so-called ad-hoc networks, nodes arbitrarily join and leave, creating a dynamic topology requiring the participants to repeatedly create secret keys for their mutual communication. In the following, a protocol is presented that enables the participating devices to establish such keys with respect to a trade-off between communicational cost and the probability that colluding nodes in the network gain knowledge of others' keys.
