Conference Program

  1. Michael Felger: SIM Card Security: A look at your mobiles identity

  3. Mustafizur Rohmann: IMSI Catchers
  4. Weiling Xi: Malware on Mobile Phones
  5. Sinan Ayan: NFC - Near Field Communication


The increasing use of mobile devices (in particular smart phones) over the last decade requires additional security considerations. Due to the lack of physical security, the air interface is prone to attacks.

In this seminar we will look at security issues in mobile networks and we will see attacks and countermeasures.
