33.1203GPPSecurity Objectives and PrinciplesTS
In addition to the above principles for 3G security, there are the high level objectives given below. These will be expanded upon in 3G TS 21.133 :
a) to ensure that information generated by or relating to a user is adequately protected against misuse or misappropriation;
b) to ensure that the resources and services provided by serving networks and home environments are adequately protected against misuse or misappropriation;
c) to ensure that the security features standardised are compatible with world-wide availability. (There shall be at least one ciphering algorithm that can be exported on a world-wide basis (in accordance with the Wassenaar agreement));
d) to ensure that the security features are adequately standardised to ensure world-wide interoperability and roaming between different serving networks;
e) to ensure that the level of protection afforded to users and providers of services is better than that provided in contemporary fixed and mobile networks (including GSM);
f) to ensure that the implementation of 3GPP security features and mechanisms can be extended and enhanced as required by new threats and services.
