5G security

June 14, 2017

5G systems are the next step in the evolution of mobile communication. As a fundamental enabler of the Networked Society, 5G networks need to provide capabilities not only for voice and data communication as we know it today, but also for new use cases and new industries, and for a multitude of devices and applications to connect society at large. Research and standardization have started in many technology areas of fundamental importance for 5G (such as cloud and the Internet of Things). These efforts have achieved various degrees of maturity, although the definition of 5G mobile networks has not yet reached standardization phase in the 3GPP. The evolution of LTE is a vital part of 5G. However, 5G will include the evolution of all parts of the network, such as core and management systems, as well as all protocol layers ranging from radio to applications. As a result, security is potentially affected everywhere
