DeepSec 2011: intelligent Bluetooth fuzzing – why bother?

Posted on Thursday, September 13th, 2012 in digital radio data, RF, talks, wireless by the machinegeek

Security researchers Tommi Mäkilä and Jukka Taimisto of Codenomicon gave this presentation at the DeepSec 2011 conference discussing ways to sensibly test Bluetooth stacks. Their talk presents the number of ways in which Bluetooth attacks have been attempted with varying degrees of success. They also present a discussion on fuzzing techniques and creating intelligent fuzzers for Bluetooth systems, making their case for why building intelligent fuzzers is basically a waste of time, since all the test targets will fail even with the less intelligent test suites.
