Net neutrality provides justification for massive policing of the internet, because it calls for equal treatment of *lawful* content. By definition that means filtering for unlawful content. Wait until we find out what becomes designated as unlawful. The copyright crowd and authoritarians are gonna love it. Then we all get to apply for internet licenses... whee!

Doubtful there's a driver problem with BTLE since there should be no new drivers required if the device is BT conformant (since the BT spec defines the HCI and that is well-supported by all major OS'es). More likely it's BTLE firmware for the chip that's under development.

+ - Sniff and decrypt BLE with Ubertooth->

mpeg4codec writes: Hot on the heels of Omri Iluz's BLE-sniffer-on-the-cheap, I decided to write up the BLE (Bluetooth Smart) sniffer I built on Ubertooth. My sniffer is highly robust, can capture data from connections, and is 100% open source.

I also discovered a major flaw in BLE's crypto that allows an attacker to crack its encryption key and decrypt data, 100% passively. I wrote a tool called crackle that will automatically decrypt encrypted BLE data captured by Ubertooth.
