Dear Dmitry,

If a country indeed shows diversity in security parameters, we would like to divide it.

Our data basis does not provide for enough granularity for Russia, though. Currently, we have data for only two areas. Even if these were to differ in security parameters, we would not know whether that's a spacial or temporal difference.

Once we have enough data for Russia, I'd be happy to create the different zones.

I understand you are set up to feed new data into the map?

Every major operator's network consist of up to seven major branches spanning from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok, with not uniformly distributed NSS parameters' settings which imply totally different network exposure to vulnerabilities in different parts of the country in different operators. Would it be possible to subdivide the territory of Russian Federation into North-West, Moscow and Moscow Region, Caucasus, Volga region, Urals, Siberia, Far East and check network vulnerabilities in them separatelly? From my point of view having one measure for the whole country quite misleading and stops from starting improving the situation due to lack of focus.

Hopefully I'll get my former colleagues onboard ( I'm not with the operator anymore ) to provide gsmmap with relevant report from all regions of the country.
