Alternative to classic Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy is chosen increasingly for the IoT. This technology, also known as the abbreviation BLE, is establishing itself for connected devices, as it is ideal to send small amounts of data between devices and to preserve the battery; which matches the IoT’s needs perfectly. Classic Bluetooth, on its side, is used to send large amounts of data between a device and a user (wireless headphones and speakers are using Bluetooth for example).
While these two Bluetooth protocols are used for different purposes and are not compatible, they are nevertheless to some extent similar, as they have common technologies (software and hardware), such as the one managing pairing. Thus, security manager has to keep in mind that security breaches that impact classic Bluetooth affect sometimes Bluetooth Low Energy too; however, the latter has its own features and therefore its specific flaws.
