With the increasing prevalence of mobile devices, there is an increasing risk that the mobile networks may be targeted by information warfare attacks. An investigation of mobile security issues from an information warfare perspective, with emphasis on computer network warfare and electronic warfare, is presented. The paper focuses on analysing prior cases of mobile security breaches from an information warfare perspective, however previous research is also discussed. The validity of the various potential and perceived threats to mobile security is discussed. Preliminary results from current research into mobile security and information warfare are reported; initial simulation results assessing the practicality of jamming and eavesdropping on 3G signals and the responses from first round of research interviews are discussed.
