Security in LTE Networks and Services
LTE (Long Term Evolution), which is standardized by 3GPP and 3GPP2, will enable cellular networks to support up to 10 times higher data rate and more users than existing HSPA networks. Hence, there is a great opportunity for operators and manufacturers to propose new data rate to consuming applications such as voice/data services.
However, in order to successfully deploy LTE applications in the future, it is important to carefully plan the security of such network and/or applications. LTE is an all-IP architecture, leading to security challenges at the application and operating level. Moreover, LTE will be a great platform for commercial applications where financial transactions will occur, that is why it must be done in a secured manner.
In this course all the aspects of security in LTE networks will be investigated.

Training's objectives
First a reminder of all the technologies used by LTE will be presented, and the architecture of LTE network and its components will be detailed, focusing more in particular on the security part. Then, the issues related to security in LTE will be presented, and existing solutions at the different layers of the network will be detailed. Finally, this course will be illustrated with examples of securely deployed applications

Who should attend?
Mobile operators, Manufacturers, Developer, Engineers in telecommunications, Researchers, Consultants.

Key topics
LTE, security, 4G, secured applications.
