  • PR: Cylink’s SAFER+ Algorithm Provides User Authentication for
    Bluetooth

    “More than 1,700 companies support the Bluetooth protocol. With
    Bluetooth-enabled devices, a wireless personal area network (PAN)
    for mobile commerce can easily be created using peripheral devices,
    notebooks or handheld computers, smart telephones, and even vending
    machines. The SAFER+ algorithm is one section of the Bluetooth
    protocol. The algorithm enables one user to send a test message to
    a recipient for encryption and compare the returned encrypted
    message with his own encryption of the test message. A perfect
    match verifies the recipient’s authenticity.”
