Security Research Labs

GSM telephony is the world’s most popular communication technology spanning most countries and connecting over four billion devices.

The security standards for voice and text messaging date back to 1990 and have never been overhauled. SRLab’s GSM Security Project creates tools to test and document vulnerabilities in GSM networks around the world. The project will create tools to detect and, where possible, prevent abuse of mobile network and SIM card vulnerabilities, and spread the tools to end users as widely as possible.
