Impact of Mobile Network SS7 Vulnerabilities on GSM-based IIoT Devices

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Through the SS7 network, a malicious attacker can locate a mobile device, intercept SMS messages and perform denial of service attacks. These attacks are possible on most mobile networks around the world, including on GSM-based IoT devices used in many industrial control systems.

This session will look at how the SS7 network works, what it is normally used for, what a malicious attacker needs in order to perform attacks on the SS7 network and who has been using the SS7 network to perform attacks. We will also look into detail at various types of attacks such as geo-location, SMS interception and denial of service, and how they would affect GSM-based IoT devices such as smart cars, medical devices, ATMs, security cameras, home automation devices and smart factories. Finally, we will review some of the protection mechanisms that can be implemented, not only on the mobile operator's side, but also those that IoT connectivity providers can implement using various strategies and technologies.
