What is GSM Encryption? 

GSM is the abbreviated term for General System for Mobile communications and this is known as a standard for the mobile phone telephony system. And, the process in which phone conversations is messed up via a network while making use of GSM is called GSM encryption. Once GSM encryption has been executed it is no longer possible to descramble phone conversations and private communications may also be interrupted by vicious crooks.
There is a big chance that terrorists and aggressive countries will make use of GSM encryption in their activities. Hence, the Western intelligence agencies are alarmed regarding the threats that may be brought about when such codes are executed and used in evil deeds.
It is acknowledged by many experts that one of the best qualities of GSM is its unique security feature. With its protective functions, GSM is considered to be the safest cellular telecommunications protocol globally. Having complicated encryption algorithms is the greatest factor that made GSM the most secured standard of all.
The complex process of GSM’s security involves encryption of conversation with the use of an impermanent and randomly-produced ciphering key. Security is amplified as short-term identity is used to name a subscriber and this may also be modified as time passes by.
However, experts are still alarmed with the level of security of the GSM codes even if it has already been proven that GSM’s security is created intricately. And, the apprehensions of the authorities were substantiated upon initiation of the experimental trials in which the access into the GSM codes was forced.
Security-related agencies from different countries like USA, UK, and France requested that the export of encryption tool should be confined so as to prevent invaders and terrorists from using it in carrying out their wicked plans. As a sample scenario, terrorists may hold back the authorities from finding them if they have in their possession the encryption codes designated for cellular telecommunications.
