Open source Android IMSI-Catcher Detector

Posted on Friday, January 9th, 2015 in security by DP


The crew from SecUpwN wrote in to tell us about their free and open source project to detect IMSI-Catchers and Silent SMS attacks with your Android smartphone: The Android IMSI-Catcher Detector

Starting out on XDA Developers, our small team and me has been working on an open-source security-related Android App since the end of 2013 called the “Android IMSI-Catcher Detector” (in short: AIMSICD). Our App aims to detect and avoid fake base stations (IMSI-Catchers) or other base-stations (mobile antennas) with poor/no encryption as well as Silent/Stealth SMS. Feel invited to check out our GitHub repository landing page
