CLTC Report: “Security Implications of 5G Networks”

A new report published by the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity explores how the widespread adoption of fifth-generation (5G) cellular service will lead to improvements in security — and also expose new threats and attack vectors. The report, “Security Implications of 5G Networks,” is authored by Jon Metzler, a lecturer at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley and founder of Blue Field Strategies, a consulting firm helping infrastructure clients such as network operators. The report is based upon research and interviews that Metzler conducted with support from a CLTC grant.
