Today, the National Security Agency (NSA), CISA, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), published Potential Threats to 5G Network Slicing. This guidance—created by the Enduring Security Framework (ESF), a public-private cross-sector working group led by the NSA and CISA—presents both the benefits and risks associated with 5G network slicing. It also provides mitigation strategies that address potential threats to 5G network slicing. The guidance builds upon ESF’s Potential Threat Vectors to 5G Infrastructure, published in 2021.
CISA encourages 5G providers, integrators, and network operators to review this guidance and implement the recommended mitigations. For additional 5G guidance, visit CISA.gov/5G-library.
