Mobile Phone Cloning Seminar Report, Abstract

An Introduction to Mobile Phone Cloning
Mobile Phone cloning is the process of transmission of personal identifiable information from one cellular device to another device. Cloning is completely successful with CDMA mobile telephony services. It is not so successful with GSM networks. This technique is banned in some countries like the United Kingdom. The technique of mobile cloning poses a huge risk of getting important public information hacked from unethical hackers. People unknowingly ignore the security threats and important network safety concerns with the informative data transmitted through the mobile network. In the last two years many cases of information thefts have been reported to the cyber security cells in different countries.

The efficiency of phone cloning is restricted to certain limitations. Each mobile phone usually contains a radio fingerprint in its transmitted information signal. This fingerprint is very unique for a particular number. This is not going to change even if the mobile user changes the phones MIN number or ESN number. Consequently, the cellular company is often able to grab the cloned mobile phones when there is a discrepancy between the any of the three i.e. the mobile unique fingerprint, MIN and ESN.  ESN is the acronym for an electronic serial number. The ESN or MEID is normally transmitted to the cellular company's Mobile Telephone Switching Office in order to validate and confirm the correct device connected to the mobile network.

We prepared and published this seminar abstract for final year engineering students seminar research. You should do your own research additional to this information before presenting your seminar.
