SS7 network security analysis report
February 18, 2020
Whilst the industry is distracted by 5G, Positive Technologies experts lift the lid on the vulnerabilities and threats which plague the 2G/3G networks. The SS7 protocol which is actively used in these previous generation networks can potentially open the floodgates for hackers to exploit - from tracking user location to listening in on calls. Positive Technologies’ SS7 network security analysis report is a deep-dive analysis of the SS7 network threats and recommendations of how telecom operators can protect themselves from this issue which will be a part of the telecoms ecosystems in years to come. The report monitored these vulnerabilities throughout 2019. Companies can use this insight to help them navigate the challenges throughout 2020.
5G security issues
July 11, 2019
New-generation 5G networks will be based on existing technologies such as SS7 and Diameter—both of which contain plenty of vulnerabilities. The flexibility of 5G networks means a higher likelihood of configuration mistakes. Making things even more urgent is the growing number of vulnerable IoT devices. Achieving durable security will require concerted efforts by telecom vendors and operators.
5G signaling networks: blast from the past
December 18, 2018
Each generation of mobile networks must interoperate with previous ones. As a result, newer generations inherit the weaknesses of their predecessors. In the first of a series of four reports on telecom security, we look to tackle the misconception that 5G will not be affected by existing security vulnerabilities in mobile networks.
Diameter vulnerabilities in the spotlight
June 13, 2018
Despite all the protection mechanisms in the Diameter protocol, networks and subscribers are still at risk. Attackers can exploit numerous SS7 vulnerabilities to successfully track subscriber location, cause denial of service, disconnect thousands of users, or downgrade connections to 3G. Here is our list of recommendations to mitigate security risks both for end users and operators.
