Experiment on security features of multi-provider mobile network infrastructure

In this experiment, analyse of the both security frameworks will be done and will propose a security baseline for multi-vendor infrastructures. The context of the experiment is the security level provided by the Telco Cloud infrastructure hosting the Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) and/or Cloud Native Functions (CNFs), which build the 5G network for Slice Tenants (which deploy critical and/or broadband
applications).

Additional Info

The basic scenario will include requirements of critical Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) platform(as
the Slice Tenant) hosted by the US partner, the requirements for the Cloud Provider (where 5G will be
installed), and for the Carrier Service provider (providing the 5G network software) and the outcome will be the specification of clearly separated security levels and security assurance levels (as required by Cyber Security Act - EU No 526/2013), that will have interest to the (US and EU) Regulators for certification purposes. The proposed baseline contributes in part to solve the problem of accountability of the network (i.e., who is responsible for the security maintenance of the network), which is crucial in multi-vendor infrastructures. Moreover, the project will focus on the education of a generation of engineers that will consider security aspects as one of the most valuable features of the Next Generation Internet.
