3GPP achievements and the future of telecoms.

Over the years, 3GPP has dealt with setting the standards for all relevant security functions needed to handle the use cases of the respective communications generations. To combat fraud and protect user privacy, for example, the Global System for Mobile Communications  (GSM) made the standard for SIM-cards and Air Interface encryption. Furthermore, 3G standards were defined for protection against malicious activity from the internet and mutual authentication to combat false base stations.

These are just some examples of what 3GPP and its predecessors like ETSI SMG have accomplished. They’re all very important security functionalities for the relevant use cases of telephony and mobile internet. These achievements have lasted for decades and scaled to billions of users, which is completely unique
