An IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity) number uniquely identifies a mobile device to a network operator, and is contained in the devices’ SIM card. IMSI Catchers utilize software-defined radio, amplifiers, filters, and other technologies to create a “false” mobile base station, usually in a smaller form factor.

Clearly, this has great potential to be used for illicit activities and phishing or smishing scans, or could be used by governments to monitor people illegally. However, IMSI Catcher technology can be useful for both military and civilian applications.

In the full article, Revector examines:

  • What IMSI Catchers do NOT do

The article goes on to explain that in the right hands, and built to high professional and quality standards, IMSI Catchers can be used for good. For example, they can be used on drones to find people lost in remote areas, locate victims in natural disasters, and to support law enforcement activities.
