We consider the hypothesis that dark matter is made of weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) and describe how their pair annihilation in the galactic halo generates exotic cosmic ray fluxes. Features for generic WIMP models are reviewed, pointing out cases in which clear signatures arise. Implications from available and upcoming measurements are discussed.
