Connection went well.

Pairing is a success. Device was added to whitelist. 

But on disconnection and connection (works) but pairing (fails)  I get this:

[11:08:46:649] : 'Authentication Error Notification' event received
[11:08:46:649] : Status: AUTH_ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_ENCRYPTION_KEY_SIZE
[11:08:46:649] : 'Misc Event Notification' received
[11:08:46:649] : Event Code: 0x0029 (GAP_ENCRYPT_CHANGE)
[11:08:46:649] : Event Data: Encryption OFF
[11:08:46:649] : Event Data: [00]
Error: gpm.M1108: Authentication failed.

 

Does not happen when I do the same process using an android,

Hello,

In the BLE component, Go to Gap Settings ->Security and check the Encryption Key size. The valid values of encryption key size are 7-to-16 bytes.
Also, At Peripheral side when encryption is failed due to LTK loss, CYBLE_EVT_GAP_AUTH_FAILED event with reason code CYBLE_GAP_AUTH_ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_ENCRYPTION_KEY_SIZE is given to application. 

The authentication error code CYBLE_GAP_AUTH_ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_ENCRYPTION_KEY_SIZE will occurs due to Insufficient key size for the security requirements of this device or LTK is lost 

Thanks,
P Yugandhar.

Hello,

If the encryption key size is too short, pairing will be failed with insufficient encryption key size. Could you please share your peripheral project for debugging at our end ?
You can refer to the Day015_Bonding and Day014_Whitelist code examples from the GitHub.

Thanks,
P Yugandhar.
