Secure Architecture for M-Learning Bluetooth Services

  • Catalin BOJA


  • Lorena BATAGAN




The paper describes a secure architecture for an M-Learning system that uses Bluetooth wireless networks to offer services for mobile devices. The solution is implemented on the Java ME platform using SATSA-CRYPTO. The access to these services is made possible by using Bluetooth capabilities of a mobile device that is part of a distributed system. The paper analyzes the security aspect of accessing the Bluetooth service from the confidentiality, integrity and authenticity, point of view. There are described the security options implemented by the Bluetooth Protocol, as described in JSR 82, for the Java ME platform. The proposed secure architecture solution authenticates users and their devices, using cryptographic techniques, without using devices IMEI, International Mobile Equipment Identity.
