Energy-consuming products can reach safe levels beyond the past
Bluetooth technology and security
Bluetooth technology has 20 years history. At present, the daily shipment volume of Bluetooth devices reaches 10 million pieces.There are many reasons why Bluetooth technology has such a "longevity". One of the reasons is the continuous efforts of the member companies of the Bluetooth SIG. Driven by the requirements and expertise of the member companies of the Bluetooth SIG. Bluetooth technology continues to evolve and improve. Functions become more comprehensive and powerful. which also includes safety features.
The Bluetooth core specification defines a series of security functions. Including Encryption,Certification,Privacy function and other various safety procedures, for example pairing. The profile specification may be mandatory or may only recommend the use of certain Bluetooth security features in related products.
Many Bluetooth technology and safety concept all provide security functions in the form of a security toolkit. And profile designers, product designers and software developers must choose and use security kits in their products, so as to achieve the suitable safety. Because of the security question Closely related with product, Intended users of the product and product use environment. Therefore, the product manufacturer’s team is responsible for evaluating safety issues on its own.
With a stack that complies with the latest Bluetooth core specifications, low energy consumption (LE) products can reach safe levels beyond the past. Bluetooth Low Energy begins to use a new and safer pairing method-----（LE Secure Connections）However, to achieve higher or highest security, designers and developers need to use appropriate security functions in the most appropriate way.
The tortuous learning process
If you are not familiar with Bluetooth technology and also a newbie in securit, where should you start to know about safety of Bluetooth technology, and how to start? How do you understand which security features of Bluetooth technology, and how they relate to the security concepts and issues that we usually understand.How do you learn their working principle and how to use them in the products.
So far, the answer of these questions, you need to be prepared, dive into the large-length Bluetooth core specifications and start reading.But the Bluetooth core specification is more than three thousand pages long, although there is a section dedicated to safety, but this theme has appeared in many other parts of this specification,it means if you want learn safety of Bluetooth comprehensive, do you need to read through this specification. According to your starting and your knowledge, experience before, your learning process may be difficult. For some people, learning the Bluetooth core specifications may be like climbing an extremely difficult mountain.
Bluetooth Low Energy Security Study Guide
To help you become familiar with basic security concepts, Including what security features does Bluetooth Low Energy have, how they work, and when you might use them,
We created this Bluetooth low energy security study guide. It does not replace the Bluetooth core specifications.If you have any technical questions about how the Bluetooth protocol stack works, Refer to the Bluetooth core specification is a better choice. If you have any technical questions about how the Bluetooth protocol stack works, Refer to the Bluetooth core specification is a better choice. You can think of this guide as a "guided strategy." After learning part or all of the guide, the difficulty of your work on the Bluetooth core specifications is greatly reduced.
You can think of the meaning when you see the name, the Bluetooth Low Energy Security Study Guide only focuses on the security issues related to Bluetooth Low Energy.
The Bluetooth Low Energy Security Study Guide is divided into multiple modules. If you are already familiar with general security concepts, you can skip this part. If you are already familiar with the working principle of LE Legacy Pairing,But want to understand what is going on with Bluetooth low energy secure connection,you can also directly read the section about Bluetooth low energy secure connections. After you carefully study this Bluetooth low energy security study guide, you should be able to find a time-saving and efficient way to learn Bluetooth core specifications.
The Bluetooth low energy security study guide is written for any technician who is engaged in Bluetooth low energy work.
Bluetooth Low Energy Security Study Guide can help Who?
The Bluetooth low energy security study guide is written for all technicians who are engaged in Bluetooth low energy work. CTOs and product managers can learn about the security features defined by Bluetooth Low Energy and provide them with basic industry cryptographic standards. Technical architects can gain insight into working principle of these functions,
and software developers can go through a series of exercises based on the Zephyr operating system and SDK,Gain practical experience in realizing key functions.
Now, the Bluetooth low energy security study guide can be downloaded in the resource area of the official website of the Bluetooth Technology SIG.
