Session Description

With the implementation of 5G and the ensuing increase of connected devices, we are seeing a migration to virtualized network functions which bring a wide range of benefits, including network slicing, network scalability and greater flexibility of vendor choice. But they also bring a range of potential security challenges. In this session we will explore how network operators must work together with their network equipment partners to ensure that whichever combination of 5G hardware and software they choose is secure. We will discuss key challenges such as how to ensure virtualized network functions software is always kept up to date, that code is authentic, and is running in a trusted environment.
