Pseudo Device Address randomness methods
Some phones incorrectly rotate their BLe MAC address every few seconds. This causes device discovery routines to reconsider a device even though it may have only just been identified recently. The Pseudo Device Address is a method around this. The mechanism used to generate this address needs to be reliable on a wide range of phones - even when idle for many hours - and prevent a passing attacker from predicting future addresses based on just the current observable address. There are many methods - we’re looking for suggestions that work across Android devices going back, ideally, to Android 5.0.
