Bluetooth Network Security Seminar report
Date: 14 Feb 2016
In this Seminar Report paper, we reviewed the Bluetooth Network Security Seminar Report. Wireless communications offers many benefits such as portability, increased productivity, and lower installation costs.
Wireless local area network (WLAN) devices, allow users to move their laptops from place to place within their offices or home without the need for wires and without losing internet connection.
Ad hoc networks, such as Bluetooth, allow users to:
- Synchronization with network systems and application sharing between devices.
- Eliminates cables for printer and other computer peripheral device connections.
- Provide access to network services such as Web browsing, online gaming and Internet access.
However, risks are inherent in any wireless technology. The loss of confidentiality and integrity and the threat of denial of service (DoS) attacks are risks typically associated with wireless communications.
Specific threats and vulnerabilities to wireless networks and handheld devices include the following:
- All the vulnerabilities that exist in a conventional wired network apply to wireless technologies.
- Malicious entities may gain unauthorized access to an agency's computer network through wireless connections, bypassing any firewall protections.
- Sensitive information that is not encrypted is transmitted between two wireless devices may be intercepted and disclosed. Sensitive data may be corrupted during improper synchronization.
- Data may be extracted without detection from improperly configured devices.
