Making the edge sharp and safe: update on MEC security
MEC (Multi-access Edge Computing) environments are by nature characterized by a complex multi-vendor, multi-supplier, multi-stakeholder ecosystem of equipment including both HW and SW devices. Given this overall level of system heterogeneity, the areas of security, trust, and privacy are key topics for the edge environments. Finally, the advent of edge cloud federations and the presence of (far) edge devices, e.g. in Internet-of-Things environments, requires tackling MEC security with an end-to-end (E2E) approach by leveraging existing standards relevant in the area, carefully selected to be applicable in edge computing systems.
This webinar will offer an overview of MEC security, by providing an updated status from standards and industry groups, and exploring security-related use cases and requirements with the aim of identifying aspects of security where the nature of edge computing results in insufficient industry approaches to cloud security. In particular, webinar attendees will find from speakers key interesting aspects, like security for MEC Federation, Infrastructure security and physical protection, Data protection, User security and Data security, Network Security Layer and Application Security Layer.
