5G network security is an order of magnitude more complex than any previous mobile technologies. The attack surface is bigger and the attack tools are more widely available. Cybercriminals are aware and ready, are you?
Security in 5G networks is not built in as we have been promised. Major vulnerabilities have already been exposed even before the technology has been deployed. 5G network core technologies will be fundamentally insecure. Due to the conversions of IP and telecom protocols in 5G, attackers already have access to the tools and techniques that are known to be effective and easily accessible. 5G networks have taken the game to the cybercriminals home field!
AdaptiveMobile Security’s 5G Network Security solutions allows carriers to:
The AdaptiveMobile Security 5G network security solutions bring together a combination of cybersecurity solutions that operate in unison to security 5G networks, Slices, Vertical APIs and Subscribers. This suite of security nodes provides a comprehensive security solution enhancing the industry standards and recommendations.
It is critical that 5G networks are secured at interconnects. Encryption of connections end-to-end will not ensure security is maintained as nation state adversaries will use other perceived trusted networks to execute missions against your 5G network.
An enhanced eSEPP is required to secure both interconnected network and also other network infrastructure in a mixed 4G/5G network deployment.
5G networks need to be protected internally from rogue slices compromised by threat actors. The AdaptiveMobile Security eSCP enforces security zones inside the core network. Support of slicing security on information element level, performing load monitoring and management.
5G networks will expose new application APIs that create new attack vectors that must be secured. The AdaptiveMobile Security API Security Filter for Verticals in 5G provides the security services for these APIs. Securing Northbound interface by verifying signalling and control communications these APIs can be protected from threat actors.
Increasingly sophisticated attacks are likely with the migration from 4G to 5G Core Network technology due to the complexity increasing the breadth of attack surface. We have a team of dedicated 5G security experts focussed on predicting and protecting against multi-protocol mobile security attacks.
“5G is driving the mobile industry into adopting the technology and techniques of the IT world to increase efficiency and improve functionality. However, while laudable, there needs to be a wider mindset change. When it comes to securing 5G, the telecoms industry needs to embrace a holistic and collaborative approach to secure networks across standards bodies, working groups, operators and vendors.”
