Workshop on Accountability and Liability for 5G and beyond – WAL5Gplus

16 June 2021 @ 9:00 am 5:30 pm CEST

5G security - INSPIRE-5GplusAbout this workshop

This one-day workshop organized by INSPIRE-5Gplus brought together researchers and practitioners from several domains such as actuaries, jurists, researchers in networking and multi-agent systems. They presented existing challenges and approaches for liability management for multi-party 5G ecosystems and provided digital services, with a forward-looking perspective for Beyond 5G (B5G) systems.

The multi-party and multi-layer nature of 5G ecosystems implies the inherent distribution of management and orchestration of decisions and actions across multiple entities. In such interconnected complex infrastructures on which end-to-end services are built, responsibilities can be difficult to track and therefore become obscure if no efficient liability and accountability mechanism is adopted. This problem is aggravated as soon as critical 5G verticals (e.g., suppliers of services like energy or intelligent transportation systems) are subject to specific industrial safety, security or service level rules and regulations (e.g., NIS or SEVESO Directives). Today, the ICT industry essentially elaborates on Trust and Trustworthiness (T&T) concepts, albeit not really venturing to address the fundamental question of who is really responsible during or after an incident/crisis. As a first step, the industry needs to really understand key aspects like:

  • What are the liability challenges?
  • How will we cover future risks and disasters in 5G ecosystems?
  • Which assets and capabilities will we have to investigate and develop in the coming period?

Accordingly, the purpose of this workshop was to share, compare and disseminate best practices, approaches, tools and methodologies to identify, formulate, and manage liability in 5G systems. It addressed crucial topics such as formalization of commitments and obligations (legal and technical schemes), contractualization, monitoring/supervision, evidence collection & analysis at runtime, post-mortem evidence collection & forensics to identify liabilities in case of disasters, security incidents or regulation violations.
