Preparing for 5G: A Security Primer for Federal Agencies

The Department of Defense (DoD) and agencies across the US federal government are preparing for 5G connectivity. With the promise of fast speeds, lower latency and stronger authentication mechanisms, 5G-powered networks present significant new benefits and exciting possibilities. Agencies’ internal network teams, contractors, or traditional service providers will adopt private 5G subscriptions to run small cells where needed—for example, on a military base, an agency campus, or even a ship. These 5G networks will accelerate exponential growth of connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices, which will be increasingly integrated into defense infrastructure.
