OK, then, where is it?  I looked on:

  www.iacr.org under Crypto 2003 -- no papers there.  The title of the
      paper, presented in Session 15, is:

        Instant Ciphertext-Only Cryptanalysis of GSM Encrypted Communication
        Elad Barkan,  Eli Biham,  Nathan Keller

  www.iacr.org under Conference Proceedings -- Crypto 2003 not there.
  www.iacr.org under Cryptology ePrint archive -- no Biham or GSM papers there.
  www.cs.technion.ac.il/~biham/ -- latest paper is from 2000.
  www.cs.technion.ac.il/~barkan/ -- access denied
  www.cs.technion.ac.il -- a news item about the GSM crack, but no paper.

I'm even a dues-paying IACR member, but I don't seem to have online
access to the papers from recent conferences.  I'm sure a copy will
show up in the mail a few months from now.  Let me guess -- the devils
at Springer-Verlag have stolen IACR's copyrights and the researchers
were dumb enough to hand their copyright to IACR...
