How Secure is Ultraloq's Bluetooth Smart?

Advanced Dual Data Encryption: AES + Dynamic Key  

Bank-level AES Encryption

Ultraloq UL3 BT uses Bluetooth SMART (aka low energy) to communicate, encrypting communications using bank-level 128-bit AES. A special hardware encryption coprocessor is embedded onboard for AES encryption. 

 

What is AES?

The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is a specification for the encryption of electronic data established by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in 2001. AES has been adopted by the U.S. federal government and is now used worldwide.
