Why Roaming Still Matters in a 5G World

5G changes a lot, but not everything. While 5G security is a big step forward, vulnerabilities and risks still abound, especially when it comes to roaming. Why roaming? Because GTP, the legacy protocol that provides interconnect between multi-generational network interfaces, is inherently vulnerable. And as we’ll see later in this post, multi-generational networks (2G through…

GTP Remains a Security Threat as Operators Transition to 5G

Multi-generational Mobile Networks Will Linger for Years to Come GPRS Tunneling Protocol (GTP) is a 2.5G technology that provides interconnect between various network interfaces, enabling mobile users to roam seamlessly between networks of different generations. The protocol was developed in tandem with General Packet Radio Service (GPRS), the packet-oriented mobile data standard integrated into GSM…

In 2020: My Toothbrush Will Be Hacked

In 2020, my toothbrush will be hacked. I’m sure it will happen. I will only discover it when I go to the dentist for my regular check-up and find out that I have a new cavity and [GASP], I’m still not flossing correctly. Most hacking breaches are not discovered for months after they happen. You…

A Strong Security Posture is Critical for IoT

A recent article in TechRepublic mentioned that Kaspersky saw a 9x increase in attacks - 105 million attacks from 276,000 unique IP addresses - on IoT devices in the first half of 2019 compared to the first half of 2018. This totaled 12 million attacks. These attacks on IoT devices are clearly outpacing the dramatic…

The Evolution of IoT with 5G: Future-proofing Current IoT Investment

In my last few talks on 5G, I frequently got asked that given there are close to a billion cellular IoT devices deployed today and with introduction of 5G, will it replace all the existing IoT technologies and would current investment in IoT become obsolete? The simple answer is no, but to understand this better,…
