The National Security Agency's (NSA) Cybersecurity Collaboration Center has released a video as part of its Cybersecurity Speaker Series on how 5G security relates to national security. Through the Speaker Series, NSA shares insights, lessons, and contributions from its cybersecurity work. Dr. Josiah Dykstra, NSA's Cybersecurity Technical Fellow, talked with NSA's Enduring Security Framework (ESF) Chief Natalie Pittore and Martin Goldberg, NSA's lead for 5G Developing Standards. Fifth-generation (5G) wireless technology represents the next step in the evolution of mobile communications networks, bringing many new connections, capabilities, and services. 5G is revolutionizing the way the world communicates and shares information, from automobiles to mobile phones to warfighting capabilities. Smart homes and buildings, smart cities, and remote medical services are all supported by 5G. 5G technologies also provide support for massive machine-to-machine (M2) communications for industrial automation. These new functionalities and services require a new approach to deploying advanced mobile services and new methods to integrate 5G technologies. 5G is about more than just improving wireless communications. It is about connecting systems that will allow massive amounts of data to be wirelessly processed in real-time anywhere in the world. Standard Development Organizations (SDOs) play an important role in securing 5G-ready products before production begins. The goal of standards is to reach an agreement on emerging technology functionality, features, interoperability, and security. Establishing standards ensures that solutions are available to users and developers across multiple sectors and ecosystems. This article continues to discuss the impact of 5G security on national security.
