Rome, Italy – 13 December 2022 - SecurityGen
global provider of
security solutions and services for the telecoms industry, today announced the launch of its
new 5G Cyber-security Lab. This Lab is an innovative solution designed to help MNO
security teams study and understand 5G networks, thus enabling them to prepare and
protect their networks against potential security threats.
The 5G Cyber-security Lab is a compact simulation of a 5G environment, with all the
significant pieces of 5G within it enabling security teams to study telecom technologies in
detail and explore the environment safely. SecurityGen has created the Cyber-security lab
as a training platform for MNO security teams to explore and expand their knowledge of 5G
and the range of threat vectors associated with it: and to also test and validate solutions and
techniques to ensure the safe and secure rollout of 5G networks and use cases.
Commenting on the launch, SecurityGen co-founder and CTO Dmitry Kurbatov said, “The
thinking behind the 5G Cyber-security lab is based on a simple logic – to accomplish
something new, you must properly understand the subject. This applies to 5G networks as
“With our deep expertise in telecoms security, we have designed this Lab to be focused on
providing MNO security teams with a simple, cost-effective, and security-centric environment
that is the perfect set-up for them to test, understand, and better prepare and protect their
networks against the security threats associated with 5G,” he explained.
“Coming straight from our R&D team, which has been using this simulated environment to
study the 5G security context, our new Lab is uniquely targeted at the security teams within
the network operator groups. Now with the 5G Cyber-security Lab, MNO security teams can
gain an in-depth understanding of the ways in which 5G can be hacked. The new lab helps
them define a list of security requirements and enables them to prove and test efficient ways
to protect the network against potential threats.
“While there are plenty of simulation platforms for IT available, the 5G Cyber-security Lab
stands out because it simulates telecom infrastructure, which is significantly different from IT
network environments. The lab is the perfect set-up for telco security teams to test,
understand, and better prepare and protect against the security threats associated with 5G,
before, during or after the actual network rollout.
“We started with the idea of building sort of a ‘gym’ where MNO security teams could
practice and perfect their 5G game. Our new lab is the ideal environment for operators to
ensure a secure and successful transition from their legacy networks to 5G,” concluded
About SecurityGen Cyber-security Lab
The new Lab is entirely 5G security-focused, enabling teams to undertake a deep-dive
examination of 5G to identify vulnerabilities and verify new attack techniques. Not only is it
built on recognisable SBA elements of the 5G environment, such as AMF, SMF, UPF, NRF,
AUSF, and others, it is highly customisable for vertical use cases and dedicated networks.
