Project Background

Hearing aids have become sophisticated devices, integrating advanced features and connectivity options to improve user experience. The Audeo P50-R by Phonak is one such device that offers seamless connectivity with smartphones via Bluetooth and is programmed using the Phonak Target software. While these advancements offer numerous benefits, they also introduce potential security risks that need thorough investigation.

Objectives

Our primary objective is to conduct a comprehensive and systematic analysis of the Audeo P50-R hearing aid and the Phonak Target software to identify and evaluate potential security vulnerabilities. Specifically, we aim to:

Methodology

Our approach involves several key steps:

  1. Research and Data Collection: Gather information on Bluetooth snooping and reversing techniques, device schematics, and existing research on hearing aid security.
  2. Communication Capture and Analysis: Capture and log communications during various actions performed by the hearing aid to understand its behavior and identify potential vulnerabilities.
  3. Firmware Extraction and Reverse Engineering: Extract the firmware from the hearing aid and analyze it for security flaws.
  4. Script Development: Create automation scripts to facilitate the analysis and manipulation of captured data.
  5. Stakeholder Collaboration: Engage with industry experts, healthcare providers, and regulatory bodies to share findings and discuss potential improvements.

Expected Outcomes

By the end of this project, we aim to either confirm the security robustness of the Audeo P50-R hearing aid or expose critical vulnerabilities that need to be addressed. Our findings will not only enhance the security of this specific device but also provide valuable insights for improving the security of other medical and assistive devices.
