  • Authors among the first to research Bluetooth vulnerabilities in an academic setting
  • Clearly explains vulnerabilities and countermeasures
  • Suitable for practitioners and researchers engaged with the security of networked and mobile devices

Bluetooth technology has enjoyed tremendous success, and it's now employed in billions of devices for short-range wireless data and real-time audio or video transfer. In this book the authors provide an overview of Bluetooth security. They examine network vulnerabilities and provide a literature-review comparative analysis of recent security attacks. They analyze and explain related countermeasures, including one based on secure simple pairing, and they also propose a novel attack that works against all existing Bluetooth versions. They conclude with a discussion on future research directions.

The book is appropriate for practitioners and researchers in information security, in particular those engaged in the design of networked and mobile devices.
