Mobile communication networks are using signaling protocols to allow mobile users to communicate using short messages, phone calls and mobile data. Signaling protocols are also used to manage billing for operators and much more. The design flaws that signaling inherits made them vulnerable to attacks such as location tracking of subscriber, fraud, calls and SMS interception. With the high rate of these emerging attacks on telecommunication protocols there is a need to create a comprehensive penetration testing framework for signaling. In this paper, we propose a framework called Sigploit that takes into consideration the following protocols: SS7, GTP, Diameter and SIP. © 2018 IEEE.
