Original Abstract

Core part of state-of-the-art mobile networks is composed of several standard elements like GGSN (Gateway General Packet Radio Service Support Node), SGSN (Serving GPRS Support Node), F5 or MSP (Multi Service Proxy). Each node handles network traffic from a slightly different perspective, and with various goals. In this article we will focus only on the MSP, its key features and especially on related security issues. MSP handles all HTTP traffic in the mobile network and therefore it is a suitable point for the implementation of different optimization functions, e.g. to reduce the volume of data generated by YouTube or similar HTTP-based service. This article will introduce basic features and functions of MSP as well as ways of remote access and security mechanisms of this key element in state-of-the-art mobile networks.

Czech abstract

Páteřní mobilní síť je tvořené celou řadou prvků, jako např. GGSN, SGSN, F5 nebo MSP. Každý z nich zpracovává provoz z trochu jiného pohledu a za jiným účelem. V tomto článku se zaměříme pouze na prvek Multi Service Proxy (MSP), jeho klíčové vlastnosti a zejména pak na otázky bezpečnosti. MSP zpracovává veškerý HTTP provoz v mobilní síti a je tak vhodným prvkem pro implementaci různých optimalizačních funkcí, např. pro snížení objemu dat generovaných službou YouTube. V tomto článku budou představeny základní vlastnosti a funkce MSP a také způsoby vzdáleného přístupu a zabezpečení tohoto klíčového prvku mobilních sítí současných a budoucích generací.
