Title talk: Security Challenges in Telecommunications

Several new paradigms have emerged in Telecommunications through the recent, years including 5G networking, cloud computing, and massive data processing. These paradigms have attracted a lot of interest and have shown various efficiency limitations of the protecting techniques in use due to the inability of these techniques to cope with the large values of the involved parameters and absence of appropriate real-time estimators. This talk discusses the major limitations and gives a classification of the challenges facing the access and service providers. In particular, the challenges related to identity management, user authentication, and secure QoS-aware routing will be discussed. A special interest will be made on the emerging solutions within the large scale networks.
