Quantitative Security Metrics in 5G Environment
The advent of 5G (fifth generation) telecommunication networks also brings new security challenges, in addition to many benefits to the community. Such is exemplified by its special nature of technology (as well as the new business model) and its deep involvement in people’s everyday life, hence more critical. We need proper security metrics to tell how secure these new networks are especially for decision makers. Our preliminary studies show that existing security metrics are insufficient for 5G networks (as they are not designed so). We would like to thoroughly study the state-of-the art metrics and standards and propose new security metrics that are more suitable for 5G networks.
