NFC pairing NFC_PAIRING_MODE_OOB

Hi,

I have a question regarding NFC OOB pairing (SDK version 15.2):

I am using "nfc_ble_pair_init" with PAIRING_MODE_OOB. This works when I touch nfc with my mobile. I am asked if I would like to pair with the device and if I accept I get an encrypted connection (at least I get an BLE_GAP_EVT_AUTH_STATUS event).

But when I use nRF Connect with a nrf52840-Dongle and try to connect with the device while the message is on the mobile display this also works. So I am able to connect to the device without the OOB data from another source. As I am not getting the BLE_GAP_EVT_AUTH_STATUS event I assume that the connection is not encrypted but I would like to prevent that the connection is made at all.

Do I miss something about the concept of NFC OOB pairing here?

Thanks,

Andreas
