5G ENSURE has received funding from the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation H2020 under grant agreement No 671562 | Duration November 2015 / October 2017
Saturday, 22 July, 2017 to Thursday, 27 July, 2017
Ravishankar Borgaonkar and Andrew Martin (Cyber Security at Oxford University), together with Lucca Hirschi (ETH Zurich), Shinjo Park, Altaf Shaik and Jean-Pierre Seifert (TU Berlin) are presenting their research on "New adventures in spying 3G and 4G users: Locate, Track & Monitor" at Blackhat Las Vegas Conference, 26-27 July, Mandalay Bay.
The talk will focus on:
- The 3G and 4G devices deployed worldwide are vulnerable to IMSI catcher aka Stingray devices. The next generation 5G network may address user's privacy issues related to these IMSI catcher attack techniques;
- New attack vectors that enable tracking and activity monitoring of mobile users, uncovering a new flaw in the widely deployed cryptographic protocol in 3G and 4G cellular networks;
- Different methods to exploit this flaw using low-cost setup;
- Presentation of several attacks to demonstrate their impact on end-users carrying 3G and 4G devices.
