This project aims at practical research and experimentation with the [wiki:TETRA]
5 10 laforge
trunked radio system.

7 10 laforge
It is part of the bigger family of [http://osmocom.org/ Osmocom] projects,
8 10 laforge
all aiming to create Free Software (Open Source Software) for mobile communications.

The [wiki:osmo-tetra] project aims at implementing the sending and
17 10 laforge
receiving part of the TETRA MAC/PHY layer.

19 10 laforge
Currently, it can
20 10 laforge
 * receive, demodulate and decode TETRA downlink signals of real-world TETRA networks
21 10 laforge
 * display information about SYNC, SYSINFO, MM and CMCE PDUs
22 10 laforge
 * forward those TETRA downlink signals to the [http://wireshark.org/ wireshark] protocol analyzer
23 10 laforge
 * forward IP packets contained in TETRA SNDCP to a local {{{tun/tap}}} device

== Research on Motorola Dimetra EBTS ==
26 2 laforge
27 10 laforge
We are currently investigating the hardware and software architecture of the [wiki:Dimetra_EBTS Motorola Dimetra EBTS],
28 10 laforge
including its components like Base Radio, Site Controller, etc.
29 2 laforge
30 10 laforge
The goal here is to run this equipment without a Motorla SwMI and thus have an inexpensive platform for running
31 10 laforge
your own TETRA network for research purpose.

== Applied Research on security of real-world TETRA networks ==
34 2 laforge
35 10 laforge
Using the tools we develop, we are analyzing the security of real-world TETRA networks.
36 2 laforge
37 10 laforge
Our experience so far is quite shocking: All the non-government TETRA networks that we
38 10 laforge
have encountered use no TETRA encryption at all, i.e. they are subject to very easy
39 10 laforge
eavesdropping attacks.
