I some books that do a good job of explaining the GSM air interface I need to dig those up but I don't think a software radio would be adequate its not a simple analog transmission but there are more than 1 error correcting algorithms and to write a GSM radio from scratch would be a challenge... probably you'd gain the knowledge needed to just about anything on GSM.
Anyways I wonder if these cards would be of any use: http://www.junghanns...ci_produkt.html

I am so happy to find a thread like this!
Anyways I am planning to develop my thesis on this area...
and possibly build an IMSI catcher within 3/ months. Possible? We will see!
I am based in the London, UK, and on our campus we have some good equipment we can use...
Possibly if someone wants to come over and work here I might be able to make you come down and work here.
Also I can get a budget for this project from the UNIV
which can help!
So where do we start?

For all of you that are sick of all this BS and want to do something about it, here's a great project you should check out: The "Android-IMSI-Catcher-Detector (AIMSICD)". It is an Android open-source based project to detect and (hopefully one day) avoid fake base stations (IMSI-Catchers) or other base-stations (mobile antennas) with poor/no encryption. This project aim to warn users if the ciphering is turned off and also enables several other protection-mechanisms. Since it is under constant development, we constantly search for testers and security-enthusiastic developers with balls. Don't be shy, feel free to contribute, in any way you can. They're on GitHub and XDA.
