Webinar on “Indigenous 5G Security testbed at IIT Delhi” (September 24, 2021: Online)

September 24, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

TSDSI and IIT Delhi jointly organized a Webinar on “Indigenous 5G Security Testbed at IIT Delhi” on 24th September 2021 at 0900 to 1300 IST. A research project titled “Building an end to end 5G Testbed” has been executed as a multi-institute collaborative project with participation from eight institutes- IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, IIT Hyderabad, IIT Madras, IIT Kanpur, IISc Bangalore, CEWiT and SAMEER. Each one has contributed to the testbed in a complementary manner based on the expertise and interest of each institute.

Testbed Initiative at IIT Delhi: With the world racing towards 5th generation broadband wireless technologies on all fronts, it is a crucial phase for telecom R&D and product development in India, considered one of the three largest telecom markets of the world. 5G Research and Standardization is reaching its global peak, and technology demonstration and testbeds have started gaining momentum. With a number of Government initiatives such as smart cities, Digital India and BharatNet depending heavily on the communication infrastructure, early leads by India in 5G technology development and deployments are very crucial to the country. It is also a golden opportunity to close the gap in telecom manufacturing in the country. Faculty and research scholars at IIT Delhi are developing innovative solutions in areas of i) Energy Harvesting in IoT systems; ii) Security; iii) Light Fidelity; iv) Cost Effective Air pollution monitoring system; v) Multi Access Edge Computing with Haptics application; vi) Selective Algorithms in MIMO. The developed components (both hardware and software) will be connecting on wireless Heterogeneous protocols, showcasing smart campus solutions.

Authentication Protocols

(by Manish Bansal)

10:30 to 12:30

Testbed demonstration by Mr. Rohit Joshi and Mr. Manish Bansal, research scholars of IIT Delhi

10:30 11:00

1.      How do our mobiles authenticate with the Base Station?

2.      How does a Wi-Fi router authenticate a legitimate user?

The demonstration provided firsthand collation and description of state-of-the-art details on 5G and Wi-Fi security architecture in a simple and unified manner.


Key Management in Next-Generation Networks

(by Rohit Joshi)

11:00 11:45

In this demo, multiple ways were explored to achieve confidentiality in next-generation networks. Some interesting questions were answered on how to secure the communication when using resource-constrained and computationally-limited devices.


Network Security for Low-latency Applications

(by Manish Bansal)

11:45 12:30

As a potential use-case of 5G networks, network security issues were addressed in low-latency applications such as vehicular networks. Specifically, this was asked:

1.      How to secure vehicular networks?

2.      How does the core network track information flow in the vehicular networks?
