Abstract: Current research on GSM does not deal with privacy requirements, or confuses privacy (legislated) with security (standards based). This paper seeks to examine how the applicable privacy legislation in Canada (PIPEDA) would apply to GSM services. Part I provides an overview of the evolution of network communications and how privacy legislation applies, ending with a discussion of GSM functionality and players. An description of the kind of personal information in GSM service delivery is presented in Part 2, while the privacy analysis is conducted in Part 3. Part 4 is a brief inter-disciplinary literature review demonstrating how GSM research is focused respectively on public policy and functionality, while security work focuses on authentication techniques. Various approaches to privacy are described in Part 5, and a short conclusion of the implications is presented in Part 6.
