Topical abstract

5G introduces a paradigm shift and fundamental transformation of digital wireless connectivity by converging pillars of softwarization, virtualization, and wireless networks. This convergence highlights the increased threat surface of 5G networks and the potentially severe impacts of sophisticated cyber incidents. 5G is positioned to enable much of our critical infrastructures, emergency networks, industrial and automation networks, in addition to supporting the ever-increasing mobile Internet of things (mIoT) footprint. It is critical that all stakeholders join efforts to embed security and privacy requirements in the evolving 5G architecture. To ensure the digital trustworthiness of end-to-end (E2E) 5G networks, we need to carefully investigate and mitigate cyber risks on the different layers and components. The sessions included in this topical session will aim to present a state-of-the-art perspective on some of the following topics:

  • Security of Software-Defined Networks (SDN)
  • Security of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) 
  • Network Slicing Security
  • Optimization and Orchestration Security, including AI/ML Security
  • Fog/Edge Computing Security
  • Cloud Security
  • API Security
  • Supply Chain Security (hardware and software)
  • Data Security & Privacy
  • Open Source Security
  • Trust Metrics for E2E Security
