5G campus network solutions are an emerging and increasingly important market segment for Germany as a business location, especially due to the associated implementation of the digitization of key German industries. Future 5G campus network solutions, also called private 5G networks, are characterized by the further diversification of components, made possible only by open standards to formerly proprietary interfaces from the OpenRAN area. This diversification of manufacturers and components of 5G campus solutions and the simultaneous key role in the digitization of safety-critical applications require rethinking the IT security of 5G campus solutions and developing novel concepts for resilient systems. The BSI-funded joint project "Container-based resilient architecture for 5G campus networks (in short: COBRA-5G)" addresses the following questions, among others, during its research mission:
- How can companies, organizations and institutions better protect themselves in the future against cyber attacks and unforeseen incidents on their 5G campus network solutions?
- How are such threats identified? And above all, how can they be responded to in a timely manner?
