The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), the main mobile network standards organization, is driving security architecture standards through its SA3 working group. This also comprises security solutions from several other partners and standards organizations such as IETF, ETSI and NIST.

6G Network compute


The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) defines protocols and best-practice solutions for the global internet. As part of this, the organization defines security protocols such as IPsec, EAP and TLS. Several of these protocols are incorporated by 3GPP in the 5G security architecture.

A 5G network is built using cloud and virtualization technologies. The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), developing standards for ICT systems and services defines security standards for the network’s cloud and virtualization technologies through it’s Industry Specification Group for network functions virtualization (ISG NFV).

NIST, GSMA, and others

The US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) defines, among other things, security standards for cryptography solutions, such as the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). GSMA works on several mobile network security related topics such as the eSIM specifications and interconnect security between operators. The recently approved NESAS framework for security assurance is a joint effort between 3GPP SA3 and GSMA.
