Due to advanced technological developments, mobile phone and other wireless device usage is increasing rapidly. The contents of the multimedia messages may be very important and confidential. Such confidentiality needs to be protected. Any interference and/or interceptions in the communication process would bring reduced system usage and disgruntled stakeholders. This paper discusses the several aspects of security of The Global System for Mobile communication or Group Special Mobile (GSM). In addition it examines how GSM protects the data from interception by authentication, encryption, and ciphering. It furthermore considers some likely flaws in these security methods and suggests possible measures to curb the flaws.
