 The session aims to provide an open forum for discussion about how security should be considered with upcoming 5G systems, networks and components. The ubiquity of 5G network thrives the need for secured environments that will provide users a safe, fast and reliable connectivity underpinning the future generation of application and services.

The session will pave the way towards open security considerations in the initial core 5G design such as multi-operator isolation, privacy preservation between virtual tenants, trust requirements and management in heterogeneous environments and low-latency security constraints at the physical level in 5G systems.
