    Abstract

    The evolution of mobile telecommunications has been very rapid and new and existing network technologies and services are converging and devices are becoming more and more multiform. The emergence of the Ubiquitous Computing Age, together with diffusion of information and communication technology solutions to safety-critical business sectors, bring a myriad of new information security challenges. Attackers have many asymmetric advantages over defenders, such as powerful tools and readily available resources. Furthermore, more sophisticated attacks on cryptographic algorithms, like side-channel analysis, put pressure on the development of more robust algorithms. It must be noted though, that non-malicious threats will continue to account for the biggest business impacts. In order to overcome the challenges, attention should be paid to security awareness, proactive security engineering, implementation quality and security assurance techniques.
