About this book

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.

About the authors

Dr. Keijo Haataja received his Ph.Lic. in 2007 and his Ph.D. in 2009 in Computer Science from the University of Eastern Finland (UEF), where he has been a senior assistant professor of wireless communications and data security since 2002. He is a member of the Bluetooth Security Expert Group (SEG), which works to identify threats to Bluetooth wireless security and to develop related specification enhancements, white papers, test cases, and test tools. He has also been a technical consultant to Unicta Oy since 2008. His main research interests include wireless communications, wireless security, mobile systems, sensor networks, data communications, computational intelligence, and intelligent autonomous robots.

Dr. Konstantin Hyppönen received his Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2009 from the University of Kuopio. He has lectured on data security and software engineering. He works in the Finnish Social Insurance Institution (Kela), and participates in a number of national and European projects focusing on semantic operability and the security of eHealth services.

Ms. Sanna Pasanen received her M.Sc. in 2009 in Computer Science from UEF and her B.Eng. in 2013 in ICT/Telecommunications from the Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences. She works in the telecommunications and data networks team in IBM. Her main research interests include cloud services, unified communications, VoIP, and wireless networks.

Prof. Pekka Toivanen received his M.Sc. (Tech.) degree at Helsinki University of Technology in 1989 and D.Sc. (Tech.) degree in 1996 at Lappeenranta University of Technology. He has been a full professor in computational intelligence at UEF since 2007. He has published more than 100 reviewed research articles in international conferences and journals, and has served on many conference committees and editorial boards. His areas of interest are computational intelligence, image processing, machine vision, and the compression of spectral images.
