Abstract: This paper demonstrates the secure communication in GSM. Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) is a second generation cellular standard developed to provide voice services and data delivery using digital modulation. With its great features like providing access to users at anytime and anywhere, mobile communication is very attractive among the users as well as operators and service providers. But, in spite of of several advantages, mobile communication also has been facing many security problems. In 2G and 3G technologies viz GSM, GPRS and UMTS, the architecture comprises of mainly three nodes; the mobile station (MS), Visitor Location Register/Serving GPRS Support Node (VLR/SGSN), and Home Location Register /Authentication Center (HLR/AuC). These nodes are involved to encrypt/decrypt the data and authenticate the user (MS) in GSM, GPRS and UMTS.
