On July 9, the imt-2020 (5g) propulsion group released a message saying that recently, the imt-2020 (5g) propulsion group organized 5g equipment safety test,Led by China Institute of information and communication, a test team was formed with China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom to conduct security test on 5g base stations and core network equipment of Huawei, ZTE, Ericsson, Datang and Shanghai Nokia bell. Huawei took the lead in completing the test with a pass rate of 100%.
The imt-2020 (5g) promotion group was jointly established by the Ministry of industry and information technology, the national development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of science and technology in 2013. It is an official working platform for China to promote 5g technical standard research and carry out international exchange and cooperation.
It is understood that the 5g equipment security test results of the promotion group will serve as the technical reference for operators and regulatory authorities to conduct 5g equipment security assessment. The completion of this test marks that China's 5g network security development has made important phased achievements, which is of great reference value for operators to plan 5g security capability while deploying 5g networks.
this test is based on the 5 G safety test series specification issued by the IMT-2020(5 G) propulsion group safety working group. this series specification is based on the 3 GPP 5G safety and security international standard (SCAS), and some new test cases are added according to the domestic 5 practice, hoping to actively contribute the test results to the relevant international and domestic standards.
The test object includes 5g base station and core network element equipment (including AMF, SMF, NRF, UPF, Ausf / UDM, etc.), and the test content covers general security, business function security, transmission security, operation and maintenance security and physical security. Among them, general security includes data and information protection, availability and integrity protection, security of operating system and web services, vulnerability, robustness / fuzziness, software package security, etc.
Through imt-2020 (5g) promotion group 5g equipment security test, on the one hand, it can explicitly measure the security capability of the supplier's network equipment, ensure the safety and reliability of 5g network, and enhance the industry's confidence in communication network equipment; on the other hand, it can promote the maturity of 5g security standards and products, and promote the international unified assessment and certification of 5g security.
