    Mobile World Congress is the blueprint for the NEXT big innovation. Whatever is coming NEXT will likely be born at Mobile World Congress 2014 (MWC 2014) – either announced on stage during our Conference programme, showcased in award-winning Exhibition, or conceived during one of the thousands of meetings taking place during the week.

    Security – A Major Topic of MWC 2014

    During the four days of the Mobile World Congress 2014 (Barcelona, 24-27 February 2014), the conference programme will highlight the impact of mobile on individuals and businesses – in developed and developing markets – across a range of industries.

    As always, the conference programme will challenge and educate attendees, providing essential insights on the latest technological developments, market opportunities, next-generation services, and devices which are shaping mobile communications.

    Thought leaders and industry experts from the most influential companies within the expanding mobile value chain will be participating in more than 40 conference sessions at Mobile World Congress, from thought-provoking and visionary keynote presentations to interactive panel sessions, all addressing the most pressing topics in mobile.

    The mobile ecosystem is expanding at lightning speed, with endless innovation and new applications of mobile technology.

    From contactless payments and augmented reality to embedded devices and connected cities – mobile technology is changing the landscape. The impact mobile will have on the world is limitless.

    The main components that make up the Mobile World Congress 2014 are the following ones:

    With the rise of smartphones during the last few years, mobile technologies have become a major focus of security research – and for good reason. Many of today’s mobile phones are actually mini computers that store a wealth of sensitive data and this makes them attractive targets for attackers. Some smartphone vendors have implemented NFC technology to enable contactless mobile payments. Users only have to wave their phones over NFC-capable devices to complete a transaction. Security researchers are expected to disclose new vulnerabilities in near field communication (NFC), mobile baseband firmware, HTML5 and Web application firewalls and to present them during MWC 2014.

    The Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) has been specifying the standards of Long Term Evolution (LTE) for 3G radio access. The security concerns in wireless networks might have prevented its further widespread adoption. Layered security approach in LTE will be analyzed during the congress.

    World leading telecom technology manufacturers and network operators have initiated a joint initiative aimed at driving forward the realization of the next generation of high performance mobile broadband networks based on 3GPP LTE/SAE specifications.

    During the MWC 2014 the security mechanisms for secure fast handover during Inter-RAT handover, particularly handover between 3GPP and non-3GPP networks will be discussed.

    Studies of security advances and challenges associated with emergent 4G wireless technologies will be presented during the congress. The security standards evolution across different generations of wireless standards will be analyzed. Security issues and vulnerabilities present in the above 4G standards will be discussed, too.

    It is important to mention that year over year, the GSMA Mobile World Congress attracts the largest number and highest-quality attendees of any event in the mobile industry. And true to our name, this is truly a global event.

    The “IJISC – International Journal of Information Security and Cybercrime” will be at MWC 2014 and we will analyse the main topics related to the security of mobile communication networks in the future issues of this journal.
