The impact of open-source on cellular network security


Keynote at the srsRAN Project Workshop in October 2023: The talk is a summary of the impact that open-source tools and SW radio have had on cellular security research in academia over the last 15 years. It summarizes 2G security research in ~2008-2012 and how the first OSS tools for LTE (openLTE and srsLTE) were a game changer for the field, enabling a tremendous spike in excellent cellular security research work.
