    Security for cellular and PCS systems in the United States will be based on secret key schemes for authentication and encryption. The effectiveness of security for wireless, as in other applications of cryptography, will depend on the ability of the basic cryptographic algorithms to withstand attacks and on sound protocol design. We show the IS-41 authentication protocol to be unsound by pointing ... View full abstract»

    In order to support mobility management functions in wireless/PCS networks and provide national and international roaming, well defined, standardized subscriber/terminal numbers and identities are required. Some form of station equipment identities are also needed to ensure that service is denied to non-type-approved or stolen terminals. The article provides an overview of existing standards and c...

    D-AMPS, the digital version of the Advanced Mobile Phone System (AMPS), is among the key technologies for providing personal communications services (PCS). The bulk of signaling in D-AMPS-based PCS, as, in most modern telecommunication systems, is based on Signaling System No. 7 (SS7). SS7 is a general-purpose common channel signaling (CCS) system specified by the International Telecommunication U... View full abstract»

    This article describes network signaling for PACS (Personal Access Communications System). One of the distinguishing features of PACS is that the advanced intelligent network (AIN) protocol is used, and the general AIN switch and service control point (SCP) provide the flexibility to implement PCS network/service applications. The basic method for providing PCS support transparently to the AIN swi... View full abstract»

    Large databases will be required to provide terminal, personal, and service mobility in personal communications services (PCS) networks. The intelligent network (IN) will be governed by the need to rapidly access user data to provide services in real time. Mobility will also increase the need for security, mobility service creation, and network operation, administration, management, and provisioni... View full abstract»
