NIST SP 800-127 Draft

Man-in-the-Middle (MITM) - An attack that occurs when an adversary deceives an SS/MS to appear as a legitimate BS while simultaneously deceiving a BS to appear as a legitimate SS/MS. This may allow an adversary to act as a pass-through for all communications and to inject malicious traffic into the communications stream.
