Abstract

Due to advanced technological developments, mobile phone and other wireless device
usage is increasing rapidly. The contents of the multimedia messages may be very important and
confidential. Such confidentiality needs to be protected. Any interference and/or interceptions in
the communication process would bring reduced system usage and disgruntled stakeholders. This
paper discusses the several aspects of security of The Global System for Mobile communication or
Group Special Mobile (GSM). In addition it examines how GSM protects the data from
interception by authentication, encryption, and ciphering. It furthermore considers some likely
flaws in these security methods and suggests possible measures to curb the flaws.
