ITU-T X.1127 (09/2017)

عربي | 中文 | English | Español | Français | Русский
Functional security requirements and architecture for mobile phone anti-theft measures
Recommendation ITU-T X.1127 focuses on the functional security requirements and functional architecture for smartphone anti-theft mechanisms based on the general requirements described by the GSMA.
Smartphones are rapidly proliferating and have become a nearly indispensable part of daily life. Unfortunately, many smartphone users have had their phones stolen. A smartphone anti-theft measure, i.e., a kill switch tool, for use in the event it is lost or stolen, should provide the capability to:
– remotely delete the authorized user's data that is on the smartphone;
– render the smartphone inoperable to an unauthorized user;
– prevent reactivation without the authorized user's permission to the extent technologically feasible; and
– reverse the inoperability if the smartphone is recovered by the authorized user, and restore user data on the smartphone to the extent feasible.
