NIST Offers Report on LTE Security
Friday, January 19, 2018 | Comments

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) released a document on Long Term Evolution (LTE) security.

The purpose of this document is to provide information to organizations regarding the security capabilities of cellular networks based on LTE technology. The document is primarily scoped to analyze the security of the systems traditionally owned and/or operated by a wireless provider, but also includes organizations writing firmware to operate the System on a Chip (SoC) inside of a mobile device that communicates with the cellular infrastructure.

The cellular LTE air interface, backhaul, core network and portions of a user’s mobile device, including the universal integrated circuit card (UICC) hardware token and the universal subscriber identity module (USIM) software application, are fully described within the document.

The full report is here.
