This paper gives an overview of protocols used in Bluetooth communication and security weaknesses and vulnerabilities of the Bluetooth system. Now-a-days, Bluetooth is a frequently used technique for data transmission. Bluetooth standard was come under IEEE 802.15. Its basic features are ad hoc in nature, very low power consumption and low cost. It operates on radio propagation with 2.4GHZ. Various types of security protocols are used to prevent eavesdropping and message interception but still some security weaknesses like no integrity check, man in middle attack, Bluesnarf attack and many more are present in Bluetooth transmission. This paper gives broad overview of the security flaws in Bluetooth.
