The rise of 5G technology is set to not only provide greater internet bandwidth, but also revolutionize the network infrastructure architecture and its virtualization. The continuously evolving technologies, along with the exponential growth of IoT devices, has posed unprecedented challenges for internet service providers to secure against DDoS threats. Therefore, it is necessary to set up a more effective security measure for the 5G core network architecture, which is network analytics-driven - including traffic data collection from the entire network as well as the 5G network slicing, automated traffic baselining and fingerprinting, real-time anomaly detection, virtual network segmentation, DDoS event tracking and reporting, attack pattern profiling, etc. In this session, we will take a look at the differences between analyzing 5G networks and legacy networks.
