Main Conference

Keynote 5 - 5G Security


Virtualization, containerization and softwarization technologies enable telecommunication systems to realize multi-tenancy, multi-network slicing and multi-level services. However, the use of these technologies to such ends requires a redesign of the telecommunications network architecture that goes beyond the current long-term evolution-advanced (LTE-A) and 5G Stand-Alone. This talk gives the view of fifth-generation (5G) telecommunication systems and architecture risk and vulnerability, and how to conceive to handle multi-tenancy, multi-network slicing and multi-level services security.
