Denial-of-service attack resilience of the GSM access network.
GSM network capable of connecting to any operator providing SIP trunk has been
constructed to serve as a target for controlled experiment on DoS attacks against
GSM. The usage of this network as a tool to perform DoS attack against mobile
phones was also investigated and documented.
Open source implementation of testing tool to check DoS resilience of any GSM
base station against RACH flood attack was developed as part of this thesis.
Additionally, the analysis of the GSM flaws which opened the possibility for DoS
attacks, and the analysis of potential countermeasures is presented.
