During the first meeting of ITU-T SG11 (February 2017) in the current study period, the SG11 Chairman presented the SG11 Action plan (SG11-TD173/GEN
) which summarizes the strategy of the WPs for the current Study Period, according to the presentations given by the WPs Chairmen.
There were no changes in the action plan at this SG11 meeting (16-25 October 2019). The SG11 Chairman encouraged the WPs Chairmen to provide updates to the action plan at the next SG11 meeting (March 2020), if any.
8 Conformity Assessment Steering Committee
The eighth meeting of the ITU-T Conformity Assessment Steering Committee (CASC) took place during ITU-T SG11 meeting on 18 October 2019.
Following the received contributions, CASC revised the existing Guideline “ITU-T CASC procedure to appoint ITU-T technical expert”. It was noted that during evaluation process of the appointment teams, which were set up in March 2019, it was realised that the ITU-T SGs are entrusted to appoint technical expert on ITU-T Recommendations under ITU-T SGs mandate. It means that ITU-T SGs can appoint ITU-T Technical expert without need of evaluation of Appointment Team. The proposed revision of the Guideline “ITU-T CASC procedure to appoint ITU-T technical expert” was highlighted in paragraph 9.1 of the Guideline, which was finally agreed at the SG11 closing plenary.
CASC appointed 11 technical experts proposed by ITU-T SG2, SG5 and SG16 and several individuals, who applied to be appointed as ITU-T technical experts, according to the outcomes of the assessment conducted by CASC’s appointment teams (SG11-TD936-R1/GEN
The detailed list of appointed experts is highlighted in the CASC report (SG11-TD1020-R1
). It was noted that the appointed ITU-T technical experts might be included in the IECEE assessment team to assess Testing Laboratories (TLs), which demand to be recognized as TLs with the competence on particular ITU-T Recommendations. All ITU-T SGs were invited to nominate their candidates on the relevant ITU-T Recommendations (within the mandate of the particular SG).
ITU-T SG16 requested CASC to set up a joint ITU/IEC certification schemes for several ICT technologies that have strong demand of the ICT market. Among them are:
- “safe listening” driven by SG16 in close collaboration with WHO;
- “video surveillance”;
- “Accessibility features in IPTV systems”.
According to the discussions held at the meeting, there is a market need that all relevant activities on TL recognition procedure, as well as certification schemes for such technologies, need to be put in place by mid 2020. It gives a possibility for all interested stakeholders to start TL recognition procedures and certify products by the end of 2020.
IECEE CMC WG33 was informed accordingly (SG11-LS120
Additionally, further to the request from IECEE CMC WG33, CASC decided to disseminate a questionnaire on evaluation of market needs for joint ITU/IEC TL recognition procedure and certification schemes on ITU-T Recommendations. The aim of the questionnaire is to evaluate the market needs of the in-progress joint ITU/IEC work to establish a peer assessment laboratory service (testing laboratory recognition procedure) and the joint conformity assessment program (joint ITU/IEC certification schemes) on ITU-T Recommendations. Such an analysis would help
IECEE CMC WG33
to understand the volume of the ICT market for establishing such new services.
All interested parties, including non-ITU members, are invited to complete the questionnaire (https://www.research.net/r/SG11-ITU-IEC-TL
) by 16 January 2020 at the latest. More details are available in
TSB Circular 208
. At a later stage, CASC will incorporate all outcomes and keep IECEE CMC WG33 posted.
The next CASC e-meeting is tentatively scheduled to be held on mid of January 2020. The final date will be announced on due course.
The next CASC physical meeting will take place in Geneva on 6 March 2020.
More details are available in the ITU-T CASC report, as contained in

More information about these results is available in the WP1/11 report (SG11-TD1063-R1/GEN).
11 Security issues of SS7 and other protocols
SG11 organized a “Brainstorming session on SS7 vulnerabilities and the impact on different industries including digital financial services” (Geneva, 22 October 2019). The objective of the event was to discuss the potential way forward to enhance the security mechanisms of existing protocols and its adoption rate among telecom operators in order to defend all stakeholders such as Telco operators, banks, operators of financial services, regulators and individual clients from related attacks.
Among the outcomes of the Brainstorming wrap-up sessions are (see
SG11 achieved progress on the ongoing draft Recommendation ITU-T Q.SR-Trust “Signalling requirements and architecture for interconnection between trustable network entities” which defines the signalling architecture and requirement for interconnection between trustable network entities in support of existing and emerging networks.
- Integrate the lessons learned from the lack of adoption of TCAPSec into draft Q.SR-Trust;
- Devise market economics that will drive the implementation of draft Q.SR-Trust;
- Start a work item on drafting requirements for a secure signalling architecture that will enable operators to offer OTT services to public interest services;
- Draft a requirement for a SIP-ISUP interworking function to mitigate CLI spoofing by providing origination data to the ISUP IAM request;
- Add digital signature (adopt draft Q.SR-Trust) to ISUP to create attribution of spoofed calls to telcos.
Also, following SG11 Brainstorming session on SS7 vulnerabilities (22 October 2019), SG11 will consider a possibility to start new work items dealing with framework of signalling certification centres to be used for interconnection between trustable network entities based on the ongoing SG11 work item Q.SR-Trust. SG11 informed 3GPP TSG SA3, SG2, SG17 and GSMA FASG DESS respectively (SG11-LS105
Finally, SG11 agreed the Technical report ITU-T TR-SS7-DFS “SS7 vulnerabilities and mitigation measures for digital financial services transactions”.
More details to be found in the WP1/11 report (SG11-TD1063-R1/GEN
12 VoLTE/ViLTE-related issues
13 Testing specifications, monitoring and implementation of ITU C&I Programme
SG11 agreed that the draft Recommendation ITU-T Q.3643 (ex. Q.DEN_IMS) "Signalling architecture of distributed ENUM networking for IMS" was mature enough to be determined, however, due to inputs contained in the LS from SG2 (SG11-TD950/GEN), SG11 decided to postpone the determination to the next SG11 meeting in March 2020. The relevant outgoing LS was sent to SG2 (SG11-LS104).
SG11 consented new draft Recommendation ITU-T Q.3644 (ex. Q.VoLTE-SAO-req) “Requirements for signalling network analyses and optimization in VoLTE”.
In addition, ITU-T SG11 started the new work item ITU-T Q.VoLTE-SAO-FP “Framework and protocols for signalling network analyses and optimization in VoLTE”, which defines the framework of signalling network analyses and optimization for VoLTE network, specifies the interfaces and protocols between signalling network analyses and optimization system and VoLTE network, specifies the service procedures of signalling network analyses and optimization, and specifies the AI-assisted functions and security issues of the proposed system (SG11-TD1032/GEN).
More information about these results is available in the WP1/11 report (SG11-TD1063-R1/GEN).
ITU-T SG11 consented new draft Recommendations: ITU-T Q.3056 (ex. Q.SP-RT-NP) “Signalling procedures of the probes to be used for remote testing of network parameters” and ITU-T Q.3916 (ex. Q.SQM) “Signalling requirements and architecture for the Internet service quality monitoring system”.
Furthermore, SG11 agreed ITU-T TP-TEST-UE-MS (ex. Guideline-TEST_UE/MS) “Guideline for general test procedure and specification for measurements of the LTE, 3G/2G user Equipment/mobile stations (UE/MS) for over-the-air performance testing”.

Finally, ITU-T SG11 updated the reference list of ITU-T Recommendations suitable for conformity/interoperability assessment (SG11-TD1066/GEN
More information about these results is available in the WP3/11 report (SG11-TD1073-R2/GEN
14 Internet related performance measurements
According to received contribution and outcomes of Q9/11 discussions, SG11 has decided to convert the current draft Recommendation ITU-T Q.3961 to non-normative Supplement 71 to ITU-T Q-series of Recommendations “Testing methodologies of Internet related performance measurements including e2e bit rate within the fixed and mobile operator’s networks”, which was finally agreed at the SG11 closing plenary on 25 October 2019.
All involved parties have been informed accordingly (SG11-LS110
15 Combating counterfeit ICT and mobile device theft
At this meeting, SG11 decided to change the approval procedure for draft Recommendation ITU-T Q.FW_CSM from AAP to TAP. As a result, SG11 finalized and finally determined draft new Recommendation ITU-T Q.5051 (ex. Q.FW_CSM) “Framework for Combating the use of Stolen Mobile Devices” to apply the Traditional Approval Procedure as described in Section 9 of WTSA Resolution 1 (Rev. Hammamet, 2016) (see
The draft new Recommendation ITU-T Q.5051 “Framework for Combating the use of Stolen Mobile Devices” contains the reference framework and requirements that should be considered when deploying solutions to combat the use of stolen Mobile Devices.
SG11 intends to approve this draft Recommendation following Member States consultation (see
TSB Circular 205
) at the next SG11 meeting in Geneva, 4-13 March 2020.
SG11 continues the work on draft Recommendation ITU-T TR-RLB-IMEI "Reliability of IMEI”, which describes the common concept of IMEI, including its format, allocation procedure and security issues. In addition, the report will provide information about existing vulnerabilities in terms of IMEI reprogramming and proposes some preventive measures along with possible solutions to cope with the issue.
ITU-T TR-RLB-IMEI was initiated at the previous SG11 meeting as a consequence of the received contributions, ITU Council-18 decision (C18/107
) and the report prepared by TSB. At this meeting, SG11 agreed to submit a questionnaire on IMEI reliability. This survey will help to collect data on this matter to support the work item.
Following these outcomes, SG11 also decided to start a new work item on draft Recommendation ITU-T Q.BL-Audit “Audit interface for blacklisting IMEI” (SG11-TD1071/GEN
Also, following contributions submitted from Africa region, SG11 started two new work items:
SG11 achieved progress on draft Technical Report ITU-T TR-BP_CF "Guidelines on Best Practice and Solutions for Combating Counterfeit ICT Devices".
- Technical Report (TR-FCM): Framework on combating counterfeit and stolen mobile devices in African region, which defines requirements for the deployment of a harmonised system to combat the circulation and use of counterfeit/stolen mobile devices in the African region. It will contain implementation guidelines;
- Technical Report (TR-GAA): Common guidelines for conformity assessment in African Region in order to assist in the combat counterfeit ICT devices, which defines the common requirements and guidelines for African Region to assess conformity of ICT devices in order to assist in the combat counterfeit ICT devices.
More information about these results is available in the WP3/11 report (SG11-TD1073-R2/GEN).
Brainstorming session on SS7 vulnerabilities and the impact on different industries including digital financial services, Geneva, 22 October 2019
on SS7 vulnerabilities took place on 22 October 2019 during SG11 meeting. The event was organized following market demand due to complains received from multiple customers of banks and Telco operators related to different attacks such as spoofing telephone numbers (i.e. annoying advertisement phone calls), hijacking bank assets via illegal usage of e-banking systems, location tracking, intercept calls and messages among others. All of these attacks are possible due to gaps in existing signalling protocols used in Telco (SS7, DIAMETER, etc.). These originate from legacy networks based on Signalling System Number 7 (SS7), which was developed by ITU 30 years ago. At that time, the SS7 stack was developed on the way to be used in the dedicated standalone network provided limit number of services. Currently, all SS7 based networks and their successors (DIAMETER, SIGTRAN, etc.) have become a platform for Digital Financial Services. As a result, hackers have used the gaps of such protocols to take-over of banks assets.
The event was based on interactive session where all participated stakeholders were able to express their views on the current issues and indicated the way forward.
During Brainstorming session, SG11 was encouraged to continue activities on security of signaling protocols in collaboration with SG17 and SG2 respectively.
Highlights of the discussions:Caller ID spoofing
The main issue is VoIP telephony providers which are not licensed or regulated that connect to the telecom world via SIP trunking or PRI connections and spoof CLI (virtual numbers);
Since these VoIP telephony service providers “piggyback” on other telco GTs, there is no current method to detect and block the spoofed calls;
- The leading method today is private/enterprise PBX solutions that run software to detect and block spoofed calls based on proprietary logic.
New standardization areas
- The previous attempt to create an authentication layer for TCAP (TCAPSec-TS29.204/TS33.204) needs to be studied and the lessons learned from it’s lack of adoption integrated into Q.SR-Trust.
Adoption rate of signaling security
- Try and create new standards that will enable operators to create growth engines, otherwise they may be thinned down like ISPs (the telecom infrastructure will be considered an untrusted infrastructure like the internet);
The main issue in creating the signaling infrastructure for secure OTT services that operators can offer is the limitation to their own subscribers, since the OTT applications (financial, ridesharing, food-delivery, etc.) will want an aggregated service for all of their users regardless of operator affiliation.
- We need to create market driven incentives for operators to implement signaling security. The demand for more security must generate ROI for the operator, otherwise it will not be implemented widely. Relying on local legislation to enforce the implementation of signalling security will take many years (10+), and we need to move faster than that.
Two videos of the potential attacks are made available on the event’s web page:

Preparation for WTSA-20
SG11 arranged several sessions on preparation for WTSA-20 in order to create proposals from the SG11 to WTSA-20 on the next study period, based on the inputs received from SG11 members. It was noted that SG11 must finalize their proposal of a list of Questions for next Study Period (2021-2024) in March 2020. The proposal will then be submitted to WTSA-20.
The meeting reviewed all the proposed revised Question texts, new Questions’ texts and text for the mandate of SG11 according to received contributions, based on the current list of Questions and SG11 mandate defined in
SG11 produced a draft text of its Questions for the next study period and updated its title, mandate, points of guidance and lead roles (SG11-TD1069-R1/GEN).
Several proposals to set up new Questions for next Study Period (2021-2024) were part of the discussions, as follows:
- Combating counterfeit software on ICT devices and data theft;
Note: SG11 discussed a proposal to start a new Question based on received Contributions, but there was no consensus. The discussion will continue at the next SG11 meeting (March 2020).
- Integrated Space-terrestrial Network Signalling and Protocols in New IP Networking;
Note: it was noted that there is a need to reconsider this proposal over the next SG11 meeting (March 2020). To avoid any overlaps with the current ITU-R WP4B activities, SG11 requested ITU-R WP4B to identify its current work/activities on this subject matter, if any (SG11-LS116).
- Protocols for the Control and Management of High Precision and Deterministic IP Network.
This draft text (SG11-TD1069-R1/GEN) should be taken as baseline for WTSA-20 preparatory discussions of the SG11 and should be discussed and finalized at next SG11 meeting (4-13 March 2020, Geneva, TBA).
