Project titleSniffing into Bluetooth with Ubertooth One

Bluetooth Low Energy is one of the most used wireless communication protocols. With an increasing significance of Bluetooth embedded IoT systems in daily life and industry, it is vital to identify potential security threats and vulnerabilities in the Bluetooth connected devices. Since the data transferred over these connections might be sensitive, users are vulnerable to privacy attacks through their personal wearable devices, smart locks, smart watches, wireless headphones, etc.This study attempts to analyze the security of BLE pairings, specifically focusing on the pairing between a mobile phone and a keyboard. The experimental setup exploits the Ubertooth One, an open source 2.4 GHz wireless development platform used for making Bluetooth experimentations.
