5G-ENSURE Report Summary

Project ID: 671562
Funded under: H2020-EU.

Periodic Reporting for period 1 - 5G-ENSURE (5G Enablers for Network and System Security and Resilience)

Reporting period: 2015-11-01 to 2016-06-30

Summary of the context and overall objectives of the project

5G-ENSURE will define and deliver a 5G Security Architecture, shared and agreed by the various 5G stakeholders.
It will specify, develop and release an initial set of useful and usable security enablers for 5G. These enablers will be selected for their relevance in addressing some of the foremost security concerns in order to generate the trust and confidence necessary for 5G to be widely adopted and to deliver its promises through innovative business applications.

The 5G-ENSURE project will also initiate a 5G Security testbed vision and initial set-up in which the security enablers will be made available. Moreover, the potential of the developed 5G Security enablers will be showcased and demonstrated in the context of carefully selected 5G security use cases (e.g. use cases related to cybersecurity and aerospace).

Coupled with this, 5G-ENSURE will be closely linked to the overall 5G PPP programme through active participation in common activities and fora. Specifically, 5G-ENSURE will be the project that creates and animates a dedicated 5G PPP Security Working Group to coordinate the various security-related activities.

5G-ENSURE is led by a strong consortium bringing together the appropriate and complementary skills, including standards involvement and deep telco understanding, along with an extensive network of interested parties, and have a proven track-record in coordination. 5G-ENSURE will avail itself of the support of a group of international opinion leaders.

Work performed from the beginning of the project to the end of the period covered by the report and main results achieved so far

All the project work packages have started according to the plans. The project is divided into five work packages. The WP1 concentrates on the management processes of the project and WP5 on the dissemination, communication and standardisation processes. The other three WP2, WP3, and WP4 are more technically oriented workpackages and concentrate on definining the 5G security architecture, the design and implementation of the security enablers, and building up a testbed to run these enablers.

The first eight project months that are covered by this periodic review have concentrated on producing the first versions of the deliverables specifying the architecture and implementing the release 1 related enablers, as well as setting up the test bed. The remaining 16 project months will be used in advancing the release 1 towards release 2 with final versions of the specifications and implementations.

The most important results during the review period are

- D1.1 Project handbook and work methods
- D2.1 Use cases
- D2.2 Trust model (“U2Ut and M2Mt”)
- D2.3 Risk assessment, mitigation and requirements
- D3.1 5G-PPP security enablers technical roadmap (early vision)
- D3.2 5G-PPP security enablers open specifications (v1.0)
- D4.1 5G Security testbed architecture
- D5.1 Web Platform as an interface with the umbrella 5G-PPP platform
- D5.2 First report on communication, marketing and standardisation

Progress beyond the state of the art and expected potential impact (including the socio-economic impact and the wider societal implications of the project so far)

During the spring 2016 the 5G-ENSURE project has initiated a 5G-PPP Security Working Group. The Security WG was presented at the EuCNC workshop in Athens (27-30.06.2016).
