Relay Attacks on Bluetooth Authentication and Solutions

  title={Relay Attacks on Bluetooth Authentication and Solutions},
  author={Albert Levi and Erhan Çetintas and Murat Aydos and Çetin Kaya Koç and M. Ufuk Çaglayan},
We describe relay attacks on Bluetooth authentication protocol. The aim of these attacks is impersonation. The attacker does not need to guess or obtain a common secret known to both victims in order to set up these attacks, merely to relay the information it receives from one victim to the other during the authentication protocol run. Bluetooth authentication protocol allows such a relay if the victims do not hear each other. Such a setting is highly probable. We analyze the attacks for… CONTINUE READING
