Techniques are described herein for using parameters such as Group Temporal Key (GTK) rest lifetime, GTK whole lifetime, and frame counter length/max packets per second to acquire a safe, available, and non-repeated initial frame counter. A node may use this frame counter to communicate with its neighbor node after joining any Personal Area Network (PAN).
