INSPIRE-5Gplus results published in IEEE Communications Standards Magazine
The INSPIRE-5Gplus partners Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) and National Centre for Scientific Research Demokritos (NCSRD) published an INSPIRE-5Gplus-related paper entitled “Moving Target Defense as a Proactive Defense Element for Beyond 5G” in the September 2021 issue of IEEE Communication Standards Magazine.
In this work, the authors propose Moving Target Defense (MTD) as a key proactive defense element to realize efficient and pervasive security for protecting beyond-5G infrastructures and services. The presented security mechanism leverages the flexibility of the NFV architecture and its virtualized environment to perform MTD operations with an AI/ML closed-loop approach. This approach allows obtaining an optimized and autonomous security solution preventing and mitigating attacks on network slices. The authors also present the standardization perspective, the relevant research challenges, and future research directions.
