An Enhanced Passkey Entry Protocol for Secure Simple Pairing in Bluetooth

by   Sai Swaroop Madugula, et al.

In this paper, we propose a simple enhancement for the passkey entry protocol in the authentication stage 1 of Secure Simple Pairing using preexisting cryptographic hash functions and random integer generation present in the protocol. The new protocol is more secure and efficient than previous known protocols. Our research mainly focuses on strengthening the passkey entry protocol and protecting the devices against passive eavesdropping and active Man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks in both Bluetooth Basic Rate/Enhanced Data Rate (BR/EDR) and Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE). This method can be used for any device which uses the passkey entry protocol.
