According to a report published on the GSMA website, Huawei’s 5G radio access network (RAN) products gNodeB and LTE eNodeB have passed the DEKRA 3GPP Security Assurance Specification (SCAS) test and GSMA’s Network Equipment Security Assurance Program (NESAS) audit.
DEKRA is the first safety testing laboratory in Europe authorized to conduct SCAS testing and NESAS audit. Huawei has officially passed the 3GPP SCAS test and NESAS review and evaluation, and has become the first 5G and LTE supplier.
After the end of the development life cycle, Huawei’s 5G RAN gNodeB and LTE eNodeB products have been evaluated through the security tests defined by 3GPP, and tested according to these requirements, so that the security level of network products can be objectively measured.
Huawei 5G and LTE passed all tests including general security of network products, air interface security and basic vulnerability tests, including data and information protection, air interface encryption and integrity protection, robustness and fuzzing tests.
NESAS provides the correct standard for the communications industry. It provides threat analysis, definition of key assets, security assurance methods and general security assurance requirements. The integrated evaluation process avoids decentralized evaluation and conflicting security assurance requirements in different markets.
For 5G networks, NESAS/SACS provides the right standard types: customized, authoritative, global, efficient, unified, open and continuous development. Huawei supports GSMA and 3GPP to develop global standardized security assessments, and urges the industry to widely adopt NESAS/SCAS to promote the sustainable development of these global cyber security standards.
