Abstract

The security architecture of 4G LTE standardized by Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) may deceive Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) into a sense that the network is completely free of threats and
risks. 4G LTE has known security and privacy vulnerabilities in its specifications. The 3GPP deferred these threats and risks to the MNO. MNOs are left to manage both LTE and IP based security vulnerabilities
during its service and operations to the subscribers. Hence MNOs has complex security to manage in the 4G LTE network. This paper propose a security management model for 4G LTE wireless network. MNOs
should consider the security management model when operating 4G LTE networks.
