Boxed Out: Blocking Cellular Interconnect Bypass Fraud at the Network Edge

Bradley Reaves, Ethan Shernan, Adam Bates, Henry Carter, Patrick Traynor
2015 USENIX Security Symposium  
In this paper, we present a passive detection technique for combating simboxes at a cellular base station.  ...  In so doing, we demonstrate that fraud that degrades network quality and costs telecommunications billions of dollars annually can easily be detected and counteracted in real time.  ...  Michael Good was instrumental in early work 24th USENIX Security Symposium 847 on this project that was not published in this paper, and conversations with Charles Lever were especially helpful to work out  ...
