AIR INTERFACE SECURITY
GSMK OVERWATCH®: IMSI CATCHER DETECTION
Rogue base stations, including so-called “IMSI Catchers”, have become a common threat. Their increasing deployment by state and non-state actors thanks to falling costs associated with the massive proliferation of the underlying technology poses significant concerns about the security of the air interface. Attackers’ goals typically include registration, interception, and manipulation of mobile devices ranging from executives’ smartphones to industrial automation systems.
Mobile underground offerings include premium service numbers, SMS spamming services and devices, all used for nefarious purposes including but not limited to billing and online payment fraud. Multi-slot GSM modems capable of sending tens of thousands of text messages per hour are common tools deployed by criminals in many countries. These criminals have quickly adapted to technological developments, current trends, and changing user behavior. As your subscribers’ trusted mobile network operator, you are expected to protect your subscribers’ mobile devices as well as the information stored on them.
