We are pleased to announce a Call for Papers for the IEEE Communications Magazine feature topic of “5G Security: Can 5G Be Verifiably Secure?”

We look forward to your submissions and would appreciate it if you can circulate among your colleagues and professional network.

Attached is the full announcement.

“5G heralds the advent of the true convergence of IT and Wireless and Wireline networks. In the midst of this transition, security and the operationalization of the technology are critical areas. Traditional security has seen a focus on network access and communication channel protection, but the new system will challenge the emerging standards and requires something beyond channel- and component-level analysis. Network slicing, e-SIM, MEC along with SDN/NFV and massive IoT pose new challenges that are not addressed with the legacy understanding of network security. This feature topic aims at putting together various paradigms and techniques needed to address 5G security in a holistic manner.”

Please note that the submission deadline is September 15th, 2019,
