The ubiquitous nature of Bluetooth technology presents opportunities for intelligence gathering based on historical and real-time device presence data. This information can be of value to law enforcement agencies, intelligence organisations and industry. This talk will discuss various techniques used for Bluetooth device discovery and present some interesting findings obtained from our experiments held across the Perth metro area earlier this year. The second part of this talk will provide a wider perspective based on our analysis of a globally-sourced Bluetooth device data set.

Maxim Chernyshev is a researcher with the Edith Cowan University Security Research Institute. His current work focuses on digital surveillance and multiprotocol wireless device tracking methods and fingerprinting techniques and their use in digital forensics and intelligence. His other research interests include web browser and web application security, IoT security, security data visualisation and geoforensics.
