Well, in Romania as any other country law enforcement agencies are using core network interception, and operators have to comply to interception warrants. The thing is that time to time even law enforcement agencies are using mobile interception systems in an illegal manner (without judge warrant). I'm sure that is a common practice in many other countries.

So, gsm specifications are not compulsory for operators? Can we do something to make them to pay respect to that? I know that's need a local approach and not an worldwide one. Moreover, by using Osmocom SimTrace, can be reversed that security feature?

Thanks,
Tudor.
