Securing Your Cloud-Native 5G Core

Presented by

Peter Nas , Senior Product Management Engineer and Andrew Bargery , Solutions Architect

About this talk

Service providers are increasingly deploying cloud-native 5G core networks on top of a Kubernetes-based platform stack. As new technologies, both 5G and Kubernetes introduce their own security challenges. Standard Kubernetes platforms are IT centric by nature and are lacking functions that are required in the telco environment. In this session our experts will explain how Kubernetes-based 5G networks can be organised in security zones and safely connected to external networks, such as legacy 4G, public Internet, and roaming partners. You will learn: • Best practices for 5G core design with security zones • The gaps in standard Kubernetes required for 5G traffic management and security • Managing and securing traffic between Cloud-Native Network Functions (CNFs) from different vendors • 5G security recommendations from 3GPP and GSMA By watching this lightboard session, your personal details will be shared with F5 and treated in accordance with the F5 Privacy Notice ( You also are signing up to be contacted about F5 products and services but you can unsubscribe at any time
