However, the combination of emerging technologies and 5G comes with its set of security challenges. With increasing exposure of end users, IoT, and with industries, enterprises, and applications converging towards shared infrastructure based on open technologies, there has been a rise in lucrative options for different types of attacks.

The ebook aims to provide a step by step guide to security coverage of 5G infrastructure including UE, ORAN, Core, Edge, and Cloud. It also briefly explains various levels of security mandates and options. Each breakup point, or connection point is explained with respective security considerations based on various aspects such as incremental progression of standards, new element introduction, infrastructure needs, and more. This book gives one stop view of the entire 5G security landscape distributed across the standards and forums.

The Ebook covers the following:

  • Key Features of 5G
  • Step by Step Guide to Security Coverage of 5G Infrastructure including UE, ORAN, Core, Edge, and Cloud
  • Security matrix to provide single snapshot view of end to end security requirements
  • Anticipating the Unknowns of the Future
