  • Defensive 5G-Eric Mair,Ryan Ashley A 4.5G/5G test infrastructure using COTS hardware and OS software

    Defensive 5G - Eric Mair, Ryan Ashley
    A 4.5G/5G test infrastructure using COTS hardware and OS software.

    Title:
    Defensive 5G

    Presenter:
    Eric Mair Ryan Ashley


    Abstract:
    In this work we developed a 4.5G/5G network using only commercial off the shelf (COTS) hardware and open-source software to serve as test-infrastructure for studying vulnerabilities in 5G networks. We are using software defined networking (SDN) tools such as Faucet and Dovesnap and software defined radio(SDR) capabilities such as Open5gs and srsRAN along with Docker Containers to facilitate the rapid and reliable setup and configuration of network topologies that can be used to represent the 5G networks that we intend to test. By having a configurable and repeatable mechanism that could be shared among multiple users with differing hardware setups we were able to test 5G network configurations in a variety of ways and have those results validated by other team members.
