I perfectly understand and agree about being reluctant to publish code that could be used for malicious purposes.
I was talking more about what Harald suggested: a public/private git repo related with Layers implementation into the MS.
> Currently there is no commercial activity going on. and tool mostly contain testing tools like Multiple IMSI Detach .Identity impersonation , channel hijacking like one presented in this 29C3. Channel DOS. more issue is if we publish such tools we might get in trouble from Government and also from telecom Operator for creating such tools. for same purpose we didnt published those tools. its more like publishing complete sniffing app for GSM with all codec support.
> currently we shall publish l1 l2 l3 app on target code soon when code cleaning will be completed. but dont get time as code is having multiple changes and uses library from different osmocom git hosted locally.
> about publishing tools and research papers we shall do it after total research is complete.
> and reason that its taking too much time is am single person who can do technical work and coding rest team is more on core telecom network security.

Why u didn't publish yet the sources/results of your researches into a public repo as Harald suggested?

That is attacks that can be carried out by using modified handsets which may cause misusing identity of GSM subscriber , mass cellphone cell phone switch off ,denial of service of subscriber etc. Such vulnerability may cause loss in reputation of provider.
