Abstract

Bluetooth is the technology that utilizes radio frequency waves as a way to communicate wirelessly between digital devices. The Bluetooth user has the choice of point-to-point or point-to-multipoint links whereby communication can be held between two devices, or up to eight. When devices are communicating with each other they are known as piconet, and each device is designated as a master unit or slave unit, usually depending on who initiates the connection. However, both devices have the potential to be either a master or a slave. We have given the analysis of denial of service attack in the bluetooth technology. And describe the proposed solution for this attack by the use of security manager.
