  • Title: Investigating the Security Evaluation Process for 5G Technologies
  • Abstract: The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense, and other federal government agencies are seeking to use the new capabilities and services fifth generation (5G) cellular networks offer. Federal agencies are experimenting with and piloting 5G’s enhanced mobile broadband capability as well as its ultra-reliable, low-latency service, massive connectivity for internet of things devices and edge computing. To move from pilot to implementation of new 5G technologies, proposed federal systems must go through a rigorous security assessment and authorization process defined in federal security guidance such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Risk Management Framework. In this presentation, attendees from academia, industry and the research community will be introduced to the proposed 5G security evaluation process that federal agencies could use. Also during this presentation, the question whether and how existing security assessment guidance and standards can be adapted for 5G-enabled systems will be discussed. This presentation also will inform attendees of security considerations for a 5G-enabled system via a repeatable process that can be used to guide system-level activities.
