ENS

The 7th International Workshop on Emerging Network Security

to be held in the conjunction with the ARES workshops EU Projects Symposium 2024 at 19th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security

July 30 – August 02, 2024
 

With the great success and development of 5G & beyond systems and other emerging concepts (e.g. 6G) a continued effort toward rich ubiquitous communication infrastructure, promising wide range of high-quality services is desired. It is envisioned that communication in emerging networks will offer significantly greater data bandwidth and almost infinite capability of networking resulting in unfaltering user experiences for, among others: virtual/augmented reality, massive content streaming, telepresence, user-centric computing, crowded area services, smart personal networks, Internet of Things (IoT), smart buildings and smart cities.

The communication in 5G networks and beyond is currently in the center of attention of industry, academia, and government worldwide. Emerging network concepts drive many new requirements for different network capabilities. As future networks aim at utilizing many promising network technologies, such as Software Defined Networking (SDN), Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), Information Centric Network (ICN), Network Slicing or Cloud Computing and supporting a huge number of connected devices integrating above mentioned advanced technologies and innovating new techniques will surely bring tremendous challenges for security, privacy and trust. Therefore, secure network architectures, mechanisms, and protocols are required as the basis for emerging networks to address these issues and follow security-by-design approach. Finally, since in current and future networks even more user data and network traffic will be transmitted, big data security solutions should be considered in order to address the magnitude of the data volume and ensure data security and privacy.

From this perspective, the ENS 2024 workshop aims at collecting the most relevant ongoing research efforts in emerging network security field. It also serves as a forum for 5G & beyond projects in order to disseminate their security-related results and boost cooperation, also foster development of the 5G and beyond Security Community made of 5G security experts and practitioners who pro-actively discuss and share information to collectively progress and align on the field. Last but not least it also aims to bridge 5G & Beyond community with other communities (e.g. AI) that are key to support full attainment of 5G & Beyond but also 6G promises and so for those technologies to release their full potential.

The ENS workshop builds upon three successful editions of the 5G-NS (5G Networks Security) workshop organized previously in co-location with the ARES conference since 2018.
