GSMA Mobile Security Research Acknowledgements

Welcome to the GSMA Mobile Security Research Acknowledgements page

The GSMA’s Mobile Security Research Acknowledgements page lists security vulnerability reporters that have made contributions to increasing the security of the mobile industry by submitting disclosures to the GSMA or its members. It is the primary mechanism for the GSMA to recognise and acknowledge the positive impact the reporter has had on the mobile industry by following the GSMA’s Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure (CVD) process.
This was previously known as GSMA Mobile Security Hall of Fame from 2017-May 2021.

This Mobile Security Research Acknowledgements page also facilitates the nomination and recognition of other finders that may have made significant discoveries of vulnerabilities to individual GSMA member companies.

Entry to the Mobile Security Research Acknowledgements page is optional and is at the discretion of the finder, the GSMA and/or the nominating GSMA member.

On behalf of the mobile industry, we would like to thank the following people for making a disclosure to us and recognise their contribution to increasing the security of the mobile industry:
