Abstract: Bluetooth is a Personal Area Network (WPAN) wireless technology, used in short-range communications in the 2.4GHz band. Nowadays, Bluetooth is widely used in all aspects of society, starting with the consumer market, with smartphones and other gadgets, and following with the industrial environment, through medical applications, etc. This document provides a technical overview for its two main implementations, BR / EDR and LE, and exposes its security structure in all versions as published in the SIG specification, like the key generation, bonding, authentication, encryption, etc. Although recent versions of Bluetooth have been focused on improving security, specially from 2.1 version with SSP, or Secure Connections in 4.1, there are still vulnerabilities and weaknesses that can suppose a threat. Therefore, this document will also try to collect most recent Bluetooth vulnerabilities and the possible threats they allow. It also identifies the most relevant attacks that Bluetooth has suffered in recent years and collects a list of countermeasures or good practices that Bluetooth users should know and apply to mitigate the risk against exposed threats.
