    Hi All,

    GSMA just published Securing-the-mobile-ecosystem_Key Principles Network Security and Device Integrity.

    Different types of threats (Figure 1) have the potential to undermine the integrity of networks through unauthorized interception, impersonation or service interruption. The mobile industry has been responding to these threats primarily by strengthening security hygiene, encouraging transparent debate on the balance between convenience and security, and building ever more sophisticated security functionality into the technical standards and protocols as each new generation of mobile network has been developed and deployed.

    This report addresses a number of security considerations that affect networks and devices and that have the potential to compromise the security required to keep customer communications safe and secure:
    - Network security, including physical security and signalling, interconnect and operational security
    - Mobile device security and integrity, including malware and software (both proprietary and open-source code)
    - 5G, IoT, and future network developments, including cloud and virtualization as well as supply chain
    Each of these has important implications for government, industry and other stakeholders, outlined later in this document.
