INSPIRE-5Gplus Workshop held at 2021 IEEE 5G World Forum
At the 2021 IEEE 5G World Forum (5GWF’21), INSPIRE-5Gplus held a workshop session named “Workshop on 5G Security: Current Trends, Challenges and New Enablers“. 5GWF’21, the flagship event of the IEEE Future Networks Initiative, was held virtually on 13-15 October 2021. It brought together representatives from industry, academia, and research to share their insights and discuss advances in 5G and beyond as well as address challenges in future networks deployment. The two-hour INSPIRE-5Gplus workshop session was organized and chaired by Prof. Antonio Skarmeta. It had 25 participants and 8 presenters.
Additionally, the INSPIRE-5Gplus related paper titled “Enhancing trust and liability assisted mechanisms for ZSM 5G architectures”, co-authored by Noelia Pérez Palma, Dr. Sara Nieves Matheu-García, Dr. Alejandro Molina Zarca, Dr. Jordi Ortiz and Prof. Antonio Skarmeta, was published and presented at the workshop. This paper introduces the integration of the Manufacturer Usage Description (MUD) standard alongside a Trust and Reputation Manager (TRM) into the INSPIRE-5GPlus framework. This is enforcing security properties defined by MUD files while the whole infrastructure, virtual and physical, as well as security metrics are continuously audited to compute trust and reputation values.
For INSPIRE-5Gplus, the IEEE 5G World Forum was an ideal platform to reach key stakeholders in the field of 5G and beyond.
