Security & Privacy Track

Abstract for the 5G WF’2020: Security & Privacy Vertical Track:
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 potential sever 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 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 E2E 5G networks we need to carefully investigate and mitigate cyber risks on the different layers and components including. The sessions included in this topical session will aim to present a state-of-the-art perspective on some of the following topics:

  • Software Defined Networks (SDN) Security
  • Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) Security
  • Security NFV
  • Optimization and Orchestration Security, including AI/ML Security
  • Network Slicing Security
  • Cloud Security
  • API Security
  • Supply Chain Security (hardware and software)
  • Data Security & Privacy
  • Open Source Security
