A daily experience of defending telecom operators
Nowadays telecom operators offer dozen of services from mobile, fixed lines, IPtv, satellite connectivity to full managed pbx and much more. With this attack surface it’s a real day to day challenge to handle security in a telecom network. Nevertheless with all the new introduced technologies with the full virtualized core, SDN networks and the openness 5G brings to the telecom world, security has been as important as the operational requirements. This offered us the possibility to start a deep transformation in the conception of these networks.
Part of this operator experience, the objective is to offer a global vision on how some operators are protecting their networks. We will use concrete examples of daily attacks and more complex threats that we could detect and mitigate. To extend these matters, we will open on the research we are doing to tackle fraud and security with the internal solutions we have been building.
