Cybersecurity Infrastructure Agency (CISA), National Security Agency (NSA), and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) published a new 5G security related paper – “Potential Threat Vectors to 5G Infrastructure”.

The report outlines three major potential threat vectors to the 5G infrastructure: policy and standards, supply chain, and 5G systems architecture. Each are described together with a number of sub-vectors.

The report also stresses that not implementing optional security controls can be damaging because it could make networks more vulnerable to cyberattacks.
