Service Architecture Evolution (SAE) and Long Term Evolution (LTE) provide a combined IP-based flat core architecture and high speed 100Mbps data rates over the radio access networks redefining the way mobile data is utilized. With mobile data networks evolving from GPRS / EDGE / UMTS and HSDPA / HSUPA networks; LTE promises to set the mobile data agenda for the next decade whilst complimenting existing 3GPP standard and non-3GPP standard (WiMAX) based networks.
3GPP have standardized on LTE Security Architecture through multiple releases and is focused around the following TS standards;
TS 33.401 – SAE Security Architecture
TS 33.210 and 33.310 – Network Domain Control Plane Protection and Backhaul Security
TS 33.203 – IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) Security
