Description

Cellular wireless systems have become critical in every aspect of our lives. The next generation of networks (NextG, meaning 5G and beyond) are expected to enable a plethora of new services from connecting billions of embedded systems, enabling new massive data rate applications, and providing real-time cloud, data and AI connectivity everywhere. To deliver these services, NextG networks are introducing powerful technologies including transmissions in the millimeter wave and THz frequencies; new spectrum sharing models; distributed core and radio access networks; mobile edge computing; network function virtualization; integration of pervasive sensing; and data collection for AI, to name a few. These technologies offer the potential for significantly enhanced capabilities, but they also expose the network to significant security risks including new opportunities for massive scale denial of service (DoS) attacks, man-in-the-middle (MitM) attacks, hardware and software Trojans, resource mis-usage, data breaches, and attacks launched from within the network or edge cloud itself.

To address these pressing security issues, this panel brings experts from industry, academia and government to discuss the security of our vital future communications infrastructure. What are the threats in NextG systems? How do we detect and adapt to attacks? How do we isolate diverse services while maintaining efficient resource usage? How do we exploit data while maintaining privacy? More generally, how do we build NextG networks that are both secure and deliver the incredible potential of connectivity. The event will be jointly hosted by NYU WIRELESS and the NYU Center for Cyber Security.

The event is finished.
