Proposed change affects:
(U)SIM ME/UE Radio Access Network
Core Network X
GSM ciphering capability Handling in Security Mode set up procedure
Work item code:
Use one of the following categories:
(corresponds to a correction in an earlier release)
(Addition of feature),
(Functional modification of feature)
Detailed explanations of the above categories canbe found in 3GPP TR 21.900.
Use one of the following releases: 2 (GSM Phase 2)R96 (Release 1996)R97 (Release 1997)R98 (Release 1998)R99 (Release 1999)REL-4 (Release 4)REL-5 (Release 5)
Reason for change:
Technical Background:In 24.008 there are 3 different information elements "MS Classmark" specified:MS Classmark 1, 2 and 3.- MS Classmark 2 contains all the information needed by a UMTS core network.- MS Classmark 1 is a short form of MS Classmark 2 and is used only for theLocation Update procedure.- MS Classmark 3 contains information needed by the GSM BSS. The MSClassmark 3 is *not* included in the initiating messages like CM Service Requestor Location Update Request, but only in RRC messages.For historical reasons the fields indicating the mobile’s ciphering capabilities aredistributed between the different MS Classmarks: support of A5/1, A5/2 and A5/3can be indicated with MS Classmark 2, but support of additional cipheringalgorithms (A5/4, ..., A5/7) can only be indicated with MS Classmark 3.TS 33.102:Within TS 33.102 it is needed to specify the mechanism how ciphering capabilityinformation in Classmarks 2 and 3 are handled in UTRAN.
Summary of change:
Correct mechanism is described how UTRAN handles GSM ciphering capability
Mechanism described in TS 33.102 is not correctly described.
