Security is a big issue, but frankly so is reliability with anything wireless. A little interference from Wi-Fi in the back seat or something and suddenly a car subsystem acts funny....hmmmm

How far are they planning to take BLE?  I'm not real comfortable with the driver/hacker next to me on the freeway being able to tell my car to reboot.  Call me old fashion, but sometimes wires are worth the weight and extra cost.

@tpfj, I wonder about that, too...

But in Bluetooth SIG's defense, BLE -- now getting desinged into such a variety of products -- needs to answer different requirements of end products.

Perhpas, BLE's security issue is a result of BLE's own success?

I am sure that BLE is now getting into palces the SIG hand't thought about before.

I don't fault Bluetooth SIG for wanting to drive the new standard like Bluetooth Low Energy to be used as broadcly as possible thus not incorporating the device-level security from the day one.

But protecting security and privacy of devices and data coming out of the devices should be the heart and soul of what makes Bluetooth Smart truly "smart" ...No?

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
