Hello there, I'm quite new to SMS.
I'm planning to develop a client-server system., a cell phone as the client and a PC as the server. I have some critical data to exchange. I was wondering whether SMS would be a secure option ?
I come from the IP world and the following are typically on the top of our security threat list
1) man in the middle attack
2) server spoofing
3) packet sniffing
5) Denial of service (DOS)
are any of these valid for SMS ?
What are all the common threats in SMS space ?
If I want to send unencrypted data over SMS, what are all the precautions I should take ?
