Wireless networks have become increasingly important for mobile users as mobile devices have become more popular and mobile networks are increasingly the focus of attention.
But, as we’ve seen with other recent innovations, these networks can be vulnerable to attack.
That’s why the Australian Federal Government is considering introducing legislation to require that mobile networks be able to be connected to a network by text message.
Wireless network vulnerabilities are not new, but this is the first time that mobile operators have been required to update their networks to ensure they can be used for text messaging.
The Communications Security Establishment (CSE) of the CAA will be issuing guidance on the requirement in coming weeks.
“The Government is also considering introducing a requirement that mobile network operators be able access SMS messages by using the network via SMS text messaging,” a spokeswoman for the CSE told AM.
“This is part of the Government’s Digital Communications Strategy for 2020-21.”
The new guidance is expected to be released this week and is expected for rollout to mobile operators on or around December 8, 2020.
“The guidance will also be required for mobile network providers that are currently not able to use SMS text messages.
“We are also seeking feedback from consumers about the impact of this new requirement on their ability to access mobile networks.” “
CSE’s work will include a series of consultations with industry, the public, consumers, and telcos,” the spokeswoman said.
“We are also seeking feedback from consumers about the impact of this new requirement on their ability to access mobile networks.”
There is no evidence that the SMS requirement will increase the cost of mobile network access.
But it will put mobile operators in a position where they will have to make a decision on whether they will continue to provide services to people who are using the networks that they cannot access via SMS.
The government said it is also looking at other ways to improve the security of the networks.
“There are many different ways we can improve the reliability of our mobile network,” the spokesperson said.
But some have expressed concern about the lack of information around what the SMS requirements will mean.
“We know that SMS is becoming increasingly important to mobile users and mobile operators, but it’s been a long time coming,” one of the main criticisms raised by the Communications Alliance has been over the lack to inform the public about the security requirements.
In February, Communications Alliance member telcos called for an independent review of the SMS rule.
But Communications Alliance chief executive Paul Coates said that the government had been slow to respond to the concerns raised.
He said the Coalition had not addressed the issue.
“With the Coalition in power, it’s a real problem,” Mr Coates told AM on Thursday.
“[Communications Alliance chief lobbyist] Paul Coats said that they’re not in the process of developing an independent report on the security issue.”
Cisco has also raised concerns about the SMS rules.
Calls for a more robust approach to security and encryption in the mobile world are not the only ones.
The security of mobile networks is also under scrutiny from both security experts and consumers.
Last month, a report by the cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab revealed that mobile security is a growing concern in Australia.
The report said that more than half of Australia’s mobile devices were vulnerable to malware and malicious code.
Malware can steal personal information and steal valuable information such as passwords, credit card numbers, or browsing history.
Some companies have also begun to take measures to secure their networks and to make sure that their data is secure.
Mobile network security is the subject of a global security summit scheduled to take place in London this month.
The summit aims to identify and address threats that affect mobile devices and secure their information, and to develop common approaches to cybersecurity.
