[CFP] IEEE Future Networks World Forum: Symposium on Security for 5G and Future Networks

IEEE Future Networks World Forum: Symposium on Security for 5G and Future Networks

12-14 October 2022, Montreal, Canada

IEEE FNWF 2022  website: https://fnwf.ieee.org


IMPORTANT DATES
Deadline for paper submission: 15 May 2022
Date for notification: 30 July 2022
Camera Ready Submissions: 31 August 2022

SCOPE AND MOTIVATION

The 5G long term vision is to “turn the network into an energy-efficient distributed computer system that enables agile and dynamic creation, move and suppression of processes and services in response to changing customer demands and information flows, and that supports interaction with humans through new communication modes, such as gestures, facial expressions, sound, and haptics. To make this vision a reality, a shift towards a full automation of network and service management and operation is a necessity. However, a major challenge facing full automation is the protection of the network and system assets (i.e., services, data and network infrastructure) against potential cybersecurity risks introduced by the unprecedented evolving 5G threat landscape. Indeed, the risk of full automation is the ability to replicate a small isolated error or attack broadly and rapidly, putting the entire critical ecosystem (multi-party/tenant/technologies) into peril.

5G is expected to support supremely high data rates and extremely low latency to enable a variety of applications, e.g., remote control of smart vehicles and virtual/augmented reality. Due to diversified and stringent requirements in different applications, 5G also needs  intelligent mechanisms for managing various resources including computing, networking and storage resources.

Although 5G and beyond-5G offer a multitude of benefits to the emerging applications, they are susceptible to the malicious or inadvertent introductions of vulnerabilities, such as malicious software or hardware, counterfeit components, and poor designs. Even worse, these new technologies are facing a series of inherent security and privacy threats, which intensify the vulnerabilities of the 5G networks. In addition, vastly increased numbers of devices and an elevated use of virtualization result in more 5G security threats and a broader, multifaceted attack surface. To realize strong and healthy communication networks, exploring the approaches to address the security and privacy threats are vital for both industry and academia. To address the aforementioned challenges in beyond 5G or 6G telecommunication infrastructure and services, the inherent support of full automation operations in network and service management is a necessity. One of the most critical areas of application for zero touch automation is the protection of the network and system assets against potential cybersecurity risks introduced by the unprecedented evolution of the 5G threat landscape.

Our aim is to promote the development of 5G security by design
