The proliferation of Bluetooth into a broad range of modern personal devices has generated a demand for software applications that enable users to interact with it. As with other technologies, threats exist today that endanger the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of the information transferred to and from devices using Bluetooth. The design of any software involved in transferring data via Bluetooth should include measures to protect the user’s device and data. This document provides background on Bluetooth functionality and recommendations for developing secure Bluetooth applications.
