The US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has published a new Guide to LTE Security (PDF).

The publication serves as a guide to the fundamentals of how LTE networks operate and explores the LTE security architecture, followed by an analysis of the threats posed to LTE networks and supporting mitigations.

The document introduces high-level LTE concepts and discusses technical LTE security mechanisms in detail. Technical readers are expected to understand fundamental networking concepts and general network security.

The Guide to LTE Security is intended to assist those evaluating, adopting and operating LTE networks, specifically telecommunications engineers, system administrators, cybersecurity practitioners and security researchers.
