Cybersecurity for 5G and 6G Technologies

Speaker:  Nicolas Sklavos – Patra, Greece
Topic(s):  Security and Privacy


We are about to witness soon the first incarnation of 5G/6G technologies. It provides many breakthrough capabilities that will enable it as a preferred platform for the digitized business of the future. Solid and centralized security is one of the strongest key aspects of the legacy 5th Generation networks, and the same is expected for the 6G. This cannot be achieved, however, solely by adapting those secure, proven cybersecurity functionalities and features of the 5G standard. The new business application ecosystem of 6G will drive cybersecurity to its limits. In this work, we will show the major security threats that will jeopardize the security capabilities of the 5G/6G platform. We will depict the main standardization progress so far, together with the discussed cybersecurity architecture design strategy for the 5G/6G. We conclude this area topic by providing the most advanced security considerations and challenges for the future of 5G/6G cybersecurity.
