Security for BlackBerry devices with Bluetooth wireless technology

10 May 2008

Bluetooth wireless technology uses radio waves to enable mobile devices, such as mobile phones, PDAs and laptops, to establish wireless connections with other devices that are in short range. But wireless networks and devices are not immune to security threats. Security researchers have discovered specific vulnerabilities in Bluetooth that can cause problems for users and IT administrators if they are not understood or if Bluetooth is poorly or improperly implemented.

This Research In Motion paper presents a number of built-in features and settings that enable BlackBerry users to limit or prevent potential attacks and provide system administrators with the tools to control how users use Bluetooth technology.
