5G networks will require evolution of the entire network – Radio, Core, and Management Systems, as well as all protocol layers, ranging from radio to applications.
This creates security risks across the spectrum of the 5G network. Nowadays, cloud, virtualization, as-a-service are used by telecom providers to reduce costs and deploy & optimize services at a faster pace.This approach of telecom networks:
- Exposes APIs toward users and third-party service providers to a higher degree
- Executes programs on shared hardware platforms alongside dedicated telecom software
The result is that the potential threat landscape compared to previous generation wireless technology is far greater. In addition, remote updates of software, open architecture, and multiple devices & vendors will create more security issues.
