The US cellphone industry is finally calling for submissions to the 
open security standard so may of us have clamored for so long. This is 
really good news.

The following is from :
The purpose of this web site is to solicit wide participation in the 
development of new security algorithms and procedures for North 
American Cellular and PCS telephones from the public security community.
This Web site provides the guidelines and requirements for proposals 
and provides contact information for proposal candidates.

The TIA TR-45 AHAG is inviting candidates to submit serious proposals 
to the TIA regarding next-generation privacy and authentication 
algorithms for AMPS, IS-136 TDMA, and IS-95 CDMA cellular and PCS 

(for more information see the web site)

For those unfamiliar with the acronyms, CTIA is the Carriers 
Telecommunications Industry Association, which is hosting the Web site 
but is not a standards organisation. The TIA is the ANSI-accredited 
Telecommunications Industry Association, and *is* a standards 
organisation. TR45 is the committee in charge of almost all things 
wireless. The AHAG is the "Ad Hoc Authentication Group" which oversees 
everything crypto-related.

I'm happy to answer questions about this effort, being a regular 
contributor to the AHAG. The Chair, Chris Carroll <ccarroll[at]> 
is a more formal point of contact.
