5G Cybersecurity: Preliminary Draft of NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide SP 1800-33A

A preliminary draft of SP 1800-33A, "5G Cybersecurity," is available for comment through March 4, 2021.

NIST’s National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has posted for comment a Preliminary Draft—the first of three volumes of an upcoming practice guide on 5G cybersecurity (Prelim. Draft SP 1800-33A). This practice guide can benefit organizations operating or using 5G networks, as well as network operators and equipment vendors, and may be of particular interest to the telecommunications and public safety communities. By releasing each volume of the practice guide as a preliminary draft, we can share the progress made to date, use the feedback received to shape future volumes of the practice guide, and feature the latest 5G technologies and practices that organizations can use as they transition to 5G.

The public comment period is open through March 4, 2021. See the publication details for a copy of the preliminary draft and instructions for submitting comments.
