HAIC Talk: 5G Security – the What, Why and How – with Alf Zugenmaier

We have another exciting HAIC talk coming up on the 1st of March 2019 at 17:00. Professor Alf Zugenmaier from the Munich University of Applied Sciences will tell us everything we need to know about 5G security and privacy. We have all heard that 5G will provide faster mobile Internet and that it will enable new use cases such as connected cars, autonomous driving and remote control of factory robots. But what about security? Is it any better than what we currently have?

Mobile network standards such as 3G/4G/5G are developed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). Its members include large network operators (Orange, AT&T) and vendors (Ericsson, Nokia, Huawei). Alf is currently the vice chair of the security (SA3) working group in 3GPP. This HAIC talk provides us an excellent opportunity to hear straight from the horse’s mouth: what has 3GPP done to improve our security and privacy in the next generation of mobile networks.

Speaker info: Alf Zugenmaier is professor for mobile networks and security at the university of applied sciences in Munich, Germany. He has been active in standardization within the 3GPP security standardization group since 2008, working on security standards for 4G and later 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 Diplom in Physics, both from University of Freiburg. His research interest are in network and systems security and privacy.

Venue: Lumituuli Auditorium, Dipoli, Aalto University. Street address: Otakaari 24, 02150 Espoo.

Date and Time: 1 March 2019, 17:00 – 18:30 (coffee and buns served from 16:15). The lecture will be approximately 60 minutes, after which there will be time for questions.
