Nokia doubled down on 5G network security, opening a new security testing and verification lab and launching a program to address 5G WAN security needs.“What is very interesting is it’s not just 5G we have to deal with but it’s the cloud because the 5G core is going to be cloud-based,” said Kevin McNamee, director of Nokia’s Threat Intelligence Lab, in an earlier interview at MWC 2019 in Barcelona, Spain. “We at Nokia are putting together an end-to-end security story for 5G.”Today’s announcement about the new 5G security lab and security program help flesh out that end-to-end story.“First of all, there’s potentially a lot more bandwidth and a lot more devices — particularly IoT devices — that are going to be deployed on the network,” McNamee continued. “And they are not just communicating with the internet, they are communicating with each other, and that opens up a new attack surface.” JESSICA LYONS HARDCASTLE READ MORE
