Standardization of the first phase of the next generation of cellular networks has concluded now, and 5G networks are being rolled out. This talk will focus on the standardized security of 3GPP 5G networks. It will give an understanding of how standardization works, what was standardized for security and try to shed some light to why some things are the way they are.
Alf Zugenmaier is a professor for mobile networks and security at the University of Applied Sciences in Munich, Germany, and an affiliate associate professor at Concordia University, Montreal, Canada. He has been active in standardization within the 3GPP security standardization group since 2008, working on security standards for 4G and 5G. Prior to becoming a professor, he worked at DOCOMO Euro-Labs in Munich, Germany, on secure mobility. Before that he was a postdoc at Microsoft Research in Cambridge, UK. He holds a PhD in Computer Science and a Diploma in Physics, both from the University of Freiburg. His research interests are in network and systems security and privacy.
