The next few years will witness the emergence of third generation mobile technologies, such as the Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS). The increased bandwidth available will enable the support of significantly wider application scenarios than the voice telephony and basic data services of current networks. This expansion of services will also demand a corresponding increase in the level of protection provided by the devices and network operators. This paper considers the security requirements of UMTS, with particular focus upon subscriber authentication techniques, comparing them against the more basic measures that have been considered satisfactory within second generation systems such as GSM.
