Service providers are increasingly deploying cloud-native 5G core networks on top of a Kubernetes-based platform stack. As new technologies, both 5G and Kubernetes introduce their own security challenges.

Standard Kubernetes platforms are IT centric by nature and are lacking functions that are required in the telco environment.

In this session our experts will explain how Kubernetes-based 5G networks can be organised in security zones and safely connected to external networks, such as legacy 4G, public Internet, and roaming partners. 

In this webinar, we’ll cover:

Best practices for 5G core design with security zones

The gaps in standard Kubernetes required for 5G traffic management and security

Managing and securing traffic between Cloud-Native Network Functions (CNFs) from different vendors

5G security recommendations from 3GPP and GSMA
