Question about BLE and Wi-Fi security

Postby phantomBlurrr » Fri Jul 12, 2019 8:24 pm

Hello,
I am with project implement BLE and Wi-Fi, I habe question about the security of these two. If I set BLE GAP security to MITM and etc. does the ESP take care of encryption or do I have to call that functionality myself? Same for Wi-Fi, I change to WPA2, does it do that encryption automatically or I habe to call?
Thank you for your time!

I guess what I'm trying to determine is whether the communication between ESP -> Android phone is encrypted, also ESP -> WiFi AP.

Hello,

We have used WiFi into open and WPA2 mode for AP mode configuration which is used for connection level security only.

Do you need security for data communications as well or just connection level security is OK?

Please specify your requirements from security point of view so that we can help to you as per your need.

Hi Ritesh, thank you for your reply,
I am trying to make the connection as secure as possible, so communication security is necessary as well. Any advicse on this matter is very much appreciated!

Hello,

So, you can use WIFi with security configurations for connection point of view. You can use WiFi configurations without open means with WPA or WPA2 security as per your requirements
