    Hi All,

    5G PPP just published 5Gplus_Intelligent Security Architecture for 5G and Beyond Networks Version 2.0

    This white paper introduces the evolved version of the overall INSPIRE-5Gplus framework's High-Level Architecture, describing its main functional blocks, the key security management services provided by the functional blocks, and their role in empowering intelligent closed-loop security operations. To illustrate how the INSPIRE-5Gplus framework can be applied as a zero-touch security management solution for 5G systems, the white paper presents a new set of advanced security use cases. The presented use cases cover different advanced security problems that will be demonstrated through INSPIRE-5Gplus demonstrators, namely: Demo1 – Security Management Closed Loop; Demo2 – Trust and Liability Management; and Demo3 – Moving Target Defense (MTD). The security issues covered by the described UCs include attack detection over encrypted traffic, prevention of introspection attacks, automated assessment of SSLA fulfillment, misbehavior detection in self-driving vehicular networks, on-demand and verifiable isolation of critical virtualized network functions, and proactive defense for End-to-End (E2E) network slices. The presented UCs promote different emerging technologies that can be leveraged to solve the security issues under consideration. This includes using advanced ML techniques such as Reinforcement Learning, TEE, MTD, and the new concept of "Deep Attestation" proposed by INSPIRE-5Gplus as a means to measure in a verifiable way specific security properties. It is worth mentioning that Demo1 is now accepted as an ETSI ZSM proof of concept (PoC), named "PoC #6: Security SLA assurance in 5G network slices". The accepted INSPIRE-5Gplus ETSI ZSM PoC was publicly demonstrated at the last ETSI Security Conference 20221.
