CISA has announced the joint National Security Agency (NSA) and CISA publication of the second of a four-part series, Security Guidance for 5G Cloud Infrastructures. Part II: Securely Isolate Network Resources examines threats to 5G container-centric or hybrid container/virtual network, also known as Pods. The guidance provides several aspects of pod security including limiting permissions on deployed containers, avoiding resource contention and denial-of-service attacks, and implementing real-time threat detection.
This series is being published under the Enduring Security Framework (ESF), a public-private cross-sector working group led by NSA and CISA.
CISA encourages 5G providers, integrators, and network operators to review the guidance and consider the recommendations.
