Key Negotiation of Bluetooth Vulnerability
Advisory ID: cisco-sa-20190813-bluetooth
First Published: 2019 August 13 17:00 GMT
Version 1.0: Interim
Workarounds: No workarounds available
o A weakness in the Bluetooth Basic Rate/Enhanced Data Rate (BR/EDR) protocol
core specification exposes a vulnerability that could allow for an
unauthenticated, adjacent attacker to perform a man-in-the-middle attack on
an encrypted Bluetooth connection. The attack must be performed during
negotiation or renegotiation of a paired device connection; existing
sessions cannot be attacked.
The issue could allow the attacker to reduce the entropy of the negotiated
session key that is used to secure a Bluetooth connection between a paired
device and a host device. An attacker who can successfully inject a
malicious message into a Bluetooth connection during session negotiation or
renegotiation could cause the strength of the session key to be susceptible
to brute force attack.
This advisory will be updated as additional information becomes available.
There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
