Abstract

The detection and prevention of cyber-attacks is one
of the main challenges in Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X)
autonomous platooning scenarios. A key tool in this activity is the
measurement report that is generated by User Equipment (UE),
containing received signal strength and location information. Such
data is effective in techniques to detect Rogue Base Stations (RBS)
or Subscription Permanent Identifier SUPI/5G-GUTI catchers.
An undetected RBS could result in unwanted consequences such
as Denial of Service (DoS) attacks and subscriber privacy attacks
on the network and UE. Motivated by this, this paper presents the
novel simulation of a 5G cellular system to generate a realistic
dataset of signal strength measurements that can later be used in
the development of techniques to identify and prevent RBS
interventions. The results show that the tool can create a large
dataset of realistic measurement reports which can be used to
develop and validate RBS detection techniques.
