“5G Cybersecurity: Preparing a Secure Evolution” is the name of the latest project from The National Institutes of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE). The organization wants to use information gathered for its latest publication, reports MeriTalk.
The compiled knowledge will result in a NIST Practice Guide as a Special Publication that will be made available to the public. Requesting demonstrations from different agencies throughout the industry should help coordinate 5G cyber security resources and concerns going forward.
“The publication can assist organizations that are considering adopting and deploying 5G technology with the design, acquisition process (including Request for Information and Request for Proposal development and response), integration, and operation of 5G-based networks,” stated NIST. “The findings from this work can be used by NIST and the industry collaborators to prioritize their contributions in standards developing organizations.”
Letters of interest from participants should be submitted before June 21. Information from NIST’s notice provided contact details.
