Klaus Vedder, Chair ETSI TC SCP, Requirements: Heiko Kruse, Denis Praca and Michele Berionne
The Smart Secure Platform (SSP) is the new ETSI secure element responding to essential market needs: flexibility, modularity, security and cost.
In 2019, ETSI TC SCP published the first set of SSP specifications including the standardization of a Secure Element integrated into a System of Chip (SoC) solution (TS 103 666-1).
The webinar aims to present the main concepts behind that technology and the ecosystem benefiting from it.
The pivotal deployment of 5G and network slicing has triggered the need for a radical change in the way networks and services are managed and orchestrated. Full end-to-end automation of network and service management has become an urgent necessity for delivering services with agility and speed and ensuring the economic sustainability of the very diverse set of services offered by Digital Service Providers. The ultimate automation target is to enable largely autonomous networks which will be driven by high-level policies and rules (AKA intent); these networks will be capable of self-configuration, self-monitoring, self-healing and self-optimization without further human intervention. All this requires a new flexible end-to-end architecture framework designed for closed-loop automation and optimized for data-driven machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms.
The ETSI ISG ZSM was formed with the goal to accelerate the definition of the required end-to-end architecture, and the presenter will introduce the ETSI ZSM architecture that was published on August 2019.
The ETSI Technical Committee on cybersecurity published the first globally applicable standard for consumer IoT security, ETSI TS 103 645, in February 2019. The standard will soon become a European standard (EN). This standard has also inspired the development of a test specification. This webinar will go over the 13 key areas which establish a security baseline for internet-connected consumer products and could provide the basis for future IoT certification schemes.
This webinar will provide an update of the latest activities of the ETSI Technical Committee Electronic Signatures and Infrastructures to provide a standardization framework for trust services.
It will cover digital signatures formats and procedures and policies for their creation and validation; policy, security and technical requirements for trust service providers (TSP) such as certification authorities, time-stamping authorities, TSP providing remote signature creation or validation functions, registered e-delivery providers, and long-term data preservation providers. It will also address Trusted Lists that enhance the confidence of parties relying on certificates or other services related to digital signatures by indicating whether a given TSP was operating under the approval of any recognized scheme.
Hosted by the Chairman of TC CYBER, which is the most security-focused Technical Committee in ETSI, this webinar will cover work, standards and developments in cybersecurity eco-system.

Dr. Markus Mueck, Intel, Chairman of ETSI’s technical committee for Reconfigurable Radio Systems (TC RRS).
Software radio reconfiguration offers solutions to recurring issues when linking hardware radio systems with software, allowing the upgrade and patching of radio systems deployed in the field. However, software radio systems must address a number of issues:
• How to transfer and install radio software components in a secure way
• How to provide access to new software components to a user/operator
• How to deal with device certification and type approval issues when new radio software components can modify the radio behaviour of a device
• How to provide software portability and achieve efficient radio performance
• How to gradually evolve a system towards software reconfigurability
ETSI’s Software Radio Reconfiguration model provides a modular and scalable solution to the challenge of deploying and using software radio systems. The solution, described in a recent ETSI white paper and in the EN 303 146 series of European Standards, allows a gradual and stepwise deployment of software reconfigurable radio, through different generations of equipment. This enables device manufacturers to gradually implement software reconfigurable radios, developing confidence at each step of the way.
Dr. Markus Mueck, of Intel, is the chairman of ETSI’s technical committee for Reconfigurable Radio Systems (TC RRS). In this webinar, he will explain in more details the advantages of software radio reconfiguration, and explain how the ETSI Software Radio Reconfiguration model addresses each of the issues identified above.

This Webinar will provide a high level overview of ETSI activities on the development of REST APIs for NFV Management and Orchestration, followed by a tutorial on the VNF Package specification that has just been completed.
The VNF package specification ETSI GS NFV-SOL 004 defines a standard way for VNF providers to deliver VNFs to service providers and makes the delivery simple, effective and efficient. A uniform VNF package format enables automatic execution of VNF on-boarding and acceptance testing, and allows the VNFs to be interoperable with independently developed NFV management and orchestration systems.
The VNF package specification leverages the TOSCA YAML CSAR archive format by adding all necessary integrity and authenticity features.
Dr. Michael Sharpe, Director of Spectrum and Equipment Regulation at ETSI
Since 13 June 2016, European Union Member States applied new rules for placing radio equipment on the European market and putting them into service. From 13 June this year, all radio equipment being placed on the market or put into service must comply with the new Radio Equipment Directive (RED), 2014/53/EU. ETSI’s Harmonised Standards are often the preferred method of demonstrating compliance with European radio regulations. This webinar will explain how industry can access the EU market using ETSI Harmonised Standards, provide an update on the status of availability of ETSI’s Harmonised Standards, and indicate alternative paths in the cases where Harmonised Standards are not yet available.
Dr. Michael Sharpe is the Director of Spectrum and Equipment Regulation at ETSI. He is responsible for ensuring effective co-operation of ETSI’s technical activities with the work of key regulatory bodies and partner standards bodies at the National, European and Global level. His current priorities include working with the European Commission to ensure the smooth introduction of the Radio Equipment Directive, and the continuing close co-operation with CEPT and the Commission Radio Spectrum Unit to ensure that ETSI Harmonised Standards and Regulations on radio frequency use are developed in a co-ordinated and effective manner.
