As networks evolve from 4G to 5G, the inherent characteristics of 5G—such as distributed architecture, open interfaces, and more—combine to increase cybersecurity attack surfaces. Perimeter-based security is no longer sufficient to secure the 5G core network.
Communications service providers (CSPs) need to take a more comprehensive approach to securing their 5G infrastructure from core to edge. Platform security capabilities, such as crypto acceleration and platform firmware trust, are key security building blocks that have emerged to provide necessary solutions for helping secure the 5G network.
Intel provides a unique end-to-end portfolio of built-in hardware security features along with comprehensive, easy-to-use and easy-to-deploy enabling software to help communications service providers boost network security from the core to the edge and into the cloud.
