Ubertooth – Open Source Bluetooth Sniffer

Ubertooth is an open source Bluetooth sniffer and is essentially a development platform for Bluetooth experimentation. It runs best as a native Linux install and should work fine from within a VM.

Ubertooth ships with a capable BLE (Bluetooth Smart) sniffer and can sniff some data from Basic Rate (BR) Bluetooth Classic connections.

Features

The Ubertooth is able to capture and demodulate signals in the 2.4GHz ISM band with a bandwidth of 1MHz using a modulation scheme of Frequency Shift Keying or related methods.

This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Bluetooth Basic Rate packets
  • Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth Smart)

The following may be possible:

  • 802.11 FHSS (1MBit)
  • Some proprietary 2.4GHz wireless devices
