Secured by Afero™ Devices Are Immune to Bluetooth KNOB Vulnerabilities
Security risks with connected devices highlight market need for secure IoT and validate the security-first approach taken by the Afero IoT platform
One of the most serious vulnerabilities discovered in any connectivity technology, the KNOB attack goes to the root of the Bluetooth specification. It is invisible to the apps, operating systems, and Bluetooth devices and is presumed to affect virtually all Bluetooth devices. Researchers have reportedly (https://arstechnica.com/
The Afero IoT Platform™ supports several communication protocols, including Bluetooth. It is not affected by the KNOB vulnerability because it does not rely on the compromised Bluetooth pairing mechanism. Instead, Afero always employs the equivalent of a virtual private network (VPN) over Bluetooth.
