Paper Abstract

The development and implementation of the next generation wireless technology has been a key industrial goal over the last decade where many pieces of infrastructure are being incrementally built and deployed. The dream of automated homes, driverless vehicles, automated air traffic control, and intelligent cybermedicine can all be implemented with 5G and Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML). Once you add AI/ML to the proposed high bandwidth, high speed, low latency network, with ubiquitous connectivity, we get a platform that can enable many safety-critical automated functions. 5G can also provide connectivity to every potential device to ensure owner knowledge of status and alerts for potential malfunctions. All this data can become weaponized in the wrong hands, so as we create more data to make life better and safer, we create vulnerabilities that can leverage the speed, and capacity of the communication system to harm users. This paper addresses the potential vulnerabilities and mitigations of ubiquitously implementing 5G to ensure secure communications and data protection.
