The present document gives the objectives and principles of 3GPP security.
The principles state what is to be provided by 3G security as compared to the security of second generation systems. The principles will also ensure that 3G security can secure the new services and new service environments offered by 3G systems.
The objectives give general, high level requirements for 3GPP security which will be expanded upon in 3G TS 21.133
The priorities for the implementation of 3GPP security are also given.
The following documents contain provisions which, through reference in this text, constitute provisions of the present document.
