Fifth-generation(5G) cellular is poised to transform the ICT industry through substantially enhanced mobility services, massively scalable Internet of Things (IoT) networks, and support for critical apps and services by way of ultra-low latency communications. With these anticipated improvements come great responsibilities for privacy and security. The 5G security market must be robust as solutions need to be deployed on multiple levels including devices, air interface equipment, cloud RAN infrastructure, mobile backhaul facilities, and more.
Among other areas, the 3GPP Security architecture and procedures for 5G System(Specification #: 33.501) specifies requirements for E1 and f1 interfaces as well as requirements for an overall secure environment. The organization specified many areas necessary for 5G security including subscription authentication, UE authorization, access and serving network authorization and more. Other areas include user and signalling data integrity to ensure seamlessness and interoperability between network elements.
One of the important areas emerging with 5G security that is a greater concern than ever before is data security and privacy. Much more so than LTE, 5G networks must be concerned with the confidentiality and integrity of users and signalling data. The 5G gNB must support encryption as per security policies for various potential vulnerability areas such as user data in transit as well as signalling for radio resource control. Access control is equally important as well as ensuring that serving networks are authorized by home networks.
In terms of market drivers for mobile network operators to expedite implementation of a more integrated 5G security approach, one of the primary areas of focus will be support of 5G-based private wireless networks for enterprise and industrial customers. While today's private networks take a more old-school approach to security, more security-minded enterprise, industrial and government sector customers will realize greater cybersecurity through interconnection and managed services with leading carrier 5G security solutions.
Leading carriers will transform 5G security from a cost of doing business into a major market differentiator for business customers including direct to enterprise/industrial/government customers and via hybrid models, involving neutral hosts and/or direct interconnect with private wireless networks. The challenging task for mobile network operators is to simultaneously convince business customers that they are more secure with them than without them, while not causing alarm about security holes that existed prior to the implementation of5G security solutions.
However, there will also be completely new threats and opportunities such as securing 5Gnetwork slicing for enterprise, industrial and government customers. Additional opportunities will emerge such as the ability for network operators of all types to better secure the digital identity of their customers thanks to an integrated ID management approach afforded by 5G service-based architecture.
