Encryption with YateBTS
« on: September 11, 2014, 02:25:51 PM »

I was wondering if y'all have a way of 100% confirming that everything is encrypted with YateBTS.

I know for sure that the comp128 is working. I have programmable sims that I used pysim to write.
I inserted the subscribers through the NIB interface. I used proper Ki values and marked the Sims as 2G.
I can look through the logs and see the proper SRES and KC values on both sides.
I can send SMS messages and make voice calls (internal/external) with no problem.
I have toggled on the cipher.Encrypt inside Nib/Gsm/Gsm Advanced

Then using additional outside equipment, I can see that everything still seems un-encrypted.
I see that on it states that YateBTS A51/A53 support.

Is there something I am missing/additional I need to do to turn on the encryption?
Is there any external tools used to guarantee that encryption is in place that y'all have used?

Thank you very much for your time and any help.

YateBTS don't implement channel encryption.
If you need it you should talk to Diana.
