BLE Authorization Control Service support

  • Dear forum,

    We are conceptualizing a connected medical device with wireless connectivity to smartphones. Due to the sensitive nature of the transferred information we need to ensure a properly secured channel. The Bluetooth SIG has recently released a new standard Authorization Control Service (ACS), which aims to provide such secure channel to conform to medical device security standards. Chapter 3.1 describes how secure transfers have to be rerouted through the ACS interface instead of the actual GATT server that presents the secured information.

    My questions are the following:

    1. Is there any planned timeline to add support for ACS to QtConnectivity library? Especially in the GATT server side?
    2. More importantly, is the current architecture suitable to implement ACS on top of? Specifically I'm worried that the current design doesn't allow dynamically rejecting a GATT characteristic read request from the application side.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    You should bring this matter to the development mailing list. You'll find there Qt's developers/maintainers. This forum is more user oriented.
