5G-NS 2018

Workshop on 5G Networks Security

to be held in conjunction with the ARES Projects Symposium 2018, held at ARES 2018
(ARES 2018 – http://www.ares-conference.eu)

August 27 – August 30, 2018, Hamburg, Germany

With the great success and development of 4G mobile networks it is expected that the 5th generation wireless systems (in short 5G) will be a continued effort toward rich ubiquitous communication infrastructure, promising wide range of high-quality services. It is envisioned that 5G communication will offer significantly greater data bandwidth and almost infinite capability of networking resulting in unfaltering user experiences for (among others): virtual/augmented reality, massive content streaming, telepresence, user-centric computing, crowded area services, smart personal networks, Internet of Things (IoT), smart buildings, smart cities, to name just a few.

The 5G communication is currently in the center of attention of industry, academia, and government worldwide. 5G drives many new requirements for different network capabilities. As 5G aims at utilizing many promising network technologies, such as Software Defined Networking (SDN), Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), Information Centric Network (ICN), Network Slicing, Cloud Computing, etc. and supporting a huge number of connected devices integrating above mentioned advanced technologies and innovating new techniques will surely bring tremendous challenges for security, privacy and trust. Therefore, secure network architectures, mechanisms, and protocols are required as the basis for 5G to address this problem and follow security-by-design rule. Finally, as in 5G networks even more user data and network traffic will be transferred, the big data security solutions should be sought in order to address the magnitude of the data volume and to ensure data security and privacy.

From this perspective, 5G-NS 2018 workshop aims at collecting the most relevant ongoing research efforts in 5G networks security field. It also serves as a forum for 5G-PPP Phase 1 & Phase 2 projects in order to disseminate their security-related results and tighten & boost cooperation, and foster development of the 5G Security Community made of 5G security experts and practitioners who pro-actively discuss and share information to collectively progress and align on the field.
