Recently, femtocell solutions have been attracting increasing attention since coverage for broadband radios can effectively eliminate wireless notspots. Typically, a femtocell is designed for use in a home or small business. In 2009, 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Program) announced and published the first femtocell standard. In this paper, we first point out that the user equipment (UE) registration procedure, which defined in 3GPP standard, is vulnerable to the denial-of-service (DoS) attack. Then, we propose a mechanism to defend against this attack. For compatibility, the proposed mechanism utilizes the well-defined control message in the 3GPP standard, and modifies the UE registration procedure as little as possible.
