Telecom security teams can now study 5G technology using a new training platform. This enhances their ability understand threats, assess security vulnerabilities, and develop appropriate protection techniques.
ROME, Dec. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — SecurityGenThe award-winning Global provider of security solutions for the telecoms sector, today announced the launch its 5G Cyber-security Lab. This Lab is an innovative solution that allows MNO security teams to study 5G networks and then prepare their networks to protect them against security threats.
5G Cyber-security Lab simulates a 5G environment. It contains all of the important pieces of 5G. This allows security teams to examine telecom technologies in depth and safely explore the environment. SecurityGen developed the Cyber-security Lab to train MNO security staff to learn more about 5G, as well as the various threat vectors it can pose. The lab also serves to validate and test solutions and techniques that will ensure the safe and secure rollout and use of 5G networks.
SecurityGen co-founder, CTO, commented on the launch Dmitry Kurbatov said, “The thinking behind the 5G Cyber-security lab is based on a simple logic – to accomplish something new, you must properly understand the subject. This principle applies to 5G networks.
He explained that the Lab was built using our expertise in telecom security and is designed to provide MNO security teams with an environment that is simple, cost-effective and security-focused. This Lab will allow them to test, understand and prepare their networks for the security threats associated 5G.
“Coming straight from our R&D team, which has been using this simulated environment to study the 5G security context, our new Lab is uniquely targeted at the security teams within the network operator groups. With the 5G Cyber-security Lab MNO security team can now gain a deeper understanding of the possible hacking methods for 5G. This lab allows them to create a list security requirements and to test and prove efficient ways to secure the network against possible threats.
The 5G Cyber-security Lab, which simulates telecom infrastructure and is quite different from the IT network environment, stands out among all other IT simulation platforms. This lab allows telco security personnel to better understand and prepare for the security threats that 5G will pose, whether they are before, during, or after its actual rollout.
“We started out with the idea of creating a gym where MNO security personnel could practice their 5G game and get better at it. Kurbatov stated that the lab offers operators the ideal environment to help them transition smoothly from legacy networks to 5G.
SecurityGen Cyber-security Lab
The Lab is completely 5G-focused. This allows teams to do a deep-dive analysis of 5G to discover vulnerabilities and test new attack methods. It is designed on the most recognisable SBA elements from 5G, including AMF, SMF UPF, NRF and AUSF.
