LTE brings new security concerns for telcos.

link - LTE brings new security concerns for telcos.

As long-term evolution (LTE) networks, such as Telstra's new 4G network, bring about super fast mobile broadband to consumers across the globe, they could also potentially open up smartphones, tablets and other devices to hacks that previously only concerned PC users, according to network vendor Alcatel-Lucent.

Insecure 2G needs global fix

link - Insecure 2G needs global fix: AusCERT

AusCert senior security analyst Marco Ostini has called for drastic international action to fix security holes in the 2G cellular network that currently leave everyone vulnerable to attack, even though telcos are moving to 4G networks and beyond.

Cloud for mobile operators.

IT Cutting Edge now it is CLOUD.

For big and transnational mobile operators - cloud (distributed) architecture for mobile network, global roaming, picocell, femtocell, Microcell, Wireless access point already exist.
And of course, for this Cloud architecture we require Cloud Billing :-).
Mobile operators in some countries use common core network - it's cheaper for each operator. Cloud technology is cheaper too. Many ways to implement this in mobile telecom.

But, for the first, we need to solve some access and security problems regarding this direction.

Globalisation of Mobile and Wireless Communications: Today and in 2020

Springer, 2010 - Technology & Engineering - 300 pages
Globalization of Mobile and Wireless Communications is a collection of cutting-edge research in mobile and wireless communications with impact on developments as far forward as 2020 and beyond. The book draws upon the insights and performed research work of leading experts in the field. Topics of discussion are related but not limited to spectrum-efficient radio interface technologies, enabling technologies for reconfigurability, wireless sensor networks, cognitive networks, coherent wireless transmission, algorithmic design, middleware for novel services and applications. The material has been edited to provide a vision for the future of mobile and wireless, towards a dynamic communication system that breaks down the barriers between communications means; and evolves and integrates business models and culture to match the technological evolution. In addition, strategies on how to overcome the technological challenges for achieving that vision are also outlined.

Cryptographic Algorithms and Key Sizes for Personal Identification Verification

January 5, 2011

NIST announces that Special Publication 800-78-3, Cryptographic Algorithms and Key Sizes for Personal Identity Verification, has been released. The document has been modified 1) to align the set of acceptable RSA public key exponents with FIPS 186-3 and 2) to permit the use of SHA-1 after 12/31/2010 when signing revocation information, under limited circumstances


Transitions Recommendation for Transitioning the Use of Cryptographic Algorithms and Key Lengths - NIST 800-131A

January 13, 2011

NIST announces the completion of Special Publication (SP) 800-131A, Transitions: Recommendation for Transitioning the Use of Cryptographic Algorithms and Key Lengths. This Recommendation provides the approach for transitioning from the use of one algorithm or key length to another, as initially addressed in Part 1 of SP 800-57.
