The Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS) network is being specified within the European Commission’s Research on Advanced Communications in Europe (RACE) for providing mobile communication support in Europe and the world in the 2000s.

Interacting with the UMTS network, private environments (Customer Premises Networks, CPNs) are defined with the objective of achieving solutions to the particular communications requirements of companies, transport systems (e.g. trains…), offices, etc.

In this paper, CPNs are analized, taking into account the scenarios established to cover the security requirements and the different user needs.
