Bluetooth LE Security

Bluetooth LE Security

Jacob Schwartz

Faculty: Joshua White

In this project, I have taken five different Wireshark traces from the five different public building at the SUNY Poly campus in Utica and sniffed the Bluetooth connection via Wireshark to see if Bluetooth LE is a secure protocol.

Bluetooth LE devices are used daily by millions of people which is ultimately why I wanted to conduct this experiment, Bluetooth LE is widely used by many devices especially with the prevalence of Internet Of Things devices like smart-homes, smart-watches etc. so, I wanted to see how secure it really is by using Wireshark, I can access data and information to exploit Bluetooth LE and figure out what the user was doing with their device and or some other malicious act like a man in the middle attack.
