SS7, SigTRAN and SIP Security

Telecom professional enabling network security

This course is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of SS7, SIGTRAN, and SIP security protocols. The course will cover the fundamental principles of Signaling System 7 (SS7), SIGTRAN, and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), as well as the common vulnerabilities and attacks associated with these protocols. Participants will learn how to identify and mitigate potential security risks associated with SS7, SIGTRAN, and SIP, and will gain practical experience through hands-on exercises and case studies.

The course is intended for experienced network engineers, network tuning staff and anyone with network experience, who needs in depth technical knowledge on functionality of GSM signaling.
