3GPP TSG SA WG3 - Security

The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) is the primary body for developing technology specifications for cellular networks. It self-organises through its Working Groups coordinated by the Chairs of the Technical Specifications Groups (TSGs).

SA WG3 is responsible for security and privacy in 3GPP systems, determining the security and privacy requirements, and specifying the security architectures and protocols.

The WG also ensures the availability of cryptographic algorithms which need to be part of the specifications.

The sub-WG SA3-LI provides the requirements and specifications for lawful interception in 3GPP systems.

A new 3GPP Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure (CVD) is now available: SA3 and the 3GPP Mobile Competence Centre (MCC) have implemented a process to allow suspected or proven vulnerability caused by errors, omissions or ambiguities in its Technical Specifications to be reported and quickly forwarded to the appropriate 3GPP Group, to analyse and resolve the problem.
