OneLayer Opens 5G Security Lab for Network Security Companies to Research Threats to Private Cellular Networks

Cybersecurity and telecom providers from around the world can now test their technologies and use cases in OneLayer's digital twin private network environment
OneLayer Opens 5G Security Lab for Network Security Companies

OneLayer, a pioneer in securing private LTE/5G networks for enterprises, announced today the launch of one of the world’s first 5G private network security labs. The lab, which will be open to the public for research purposes, acts as a digital twin to simulate specific threat scenarios posed to an enterprise network. The data collected during these simulations will help companies find the best security solutions for each organization and its needs.

Private cellular networks provide organizations with improved connectivity and increased reliability, a dedicated bandwidth with capacity and range, no lag time, and connectivity of IoT and OT devices across vast areas. As organizations increasingly adopt private networks, they must also address securing such networks, so the same standard of security applied to enterprise IP networks is addressed in the cellular domain.

The OneLayer 5G Security Lab provides a simulated environment for cyber and telecom companies to examine diverse security challenges and solutions in this domain. Using core equipment from Nokia, Druid, and Airspan, the lab can create private networks based on different types of cores, end units, and IoT devices to model different types of cyberattacks and the solutions to defend against them.

“The goal of this security lab is to provide the opportunity to test private networks and security use cases to improve the understanding of connected IoT and OT devices for continued R&D of OneLayer’s private cellular security platform,” said Liron Ben-Horin, VP of Systems Engineering at OneLayer. “We intend to collect and analyze data in order to profile devices and segment networks appropriately. We want to share our tools and capabilities with the private network ecosystem to foster industry collaboration. As such, we welcome any company that is researching or testing LTE/5G devices to join us on this journey at our Tel Aviv-based security lab.”

“OTORIO and OneLayer have joined forces in order to leverage OneLayer’s 5G Security Lab to test the integrations with various technologies and telecom systems,” said Matan Dobrushin, VP Research at OTORIO. “We are excited for our mutual research collaboration to ensure the usability, efficiency and safety of OTORIO’s solutions in hybrid networks.”

“We are excited for the opportunity to leverage OneLayer’s Security Lab and to work together to improve the cybersecurity of 5G core network devices,” said Sharon Brizinov, Director of Security Research at Claroty’s Team82. “The collaborations coming out of the security lab will benefit enterprise security overall as we explore the ever-growing attack surface of the Extended Internet of Things (XIoT) and these devices’ connectivity within cellular networks.”

“Armis recognizes the growing risk raised by private cellular networks,” said Barak Hadad, Head of Research at Armis. “Together with OneLayer, we can help defenders gain full visibility to their core networks and their connected devices.”

“I’m excited to see a Tel Aviv-based startup, OneLayer, investing in a unique 5G devices lab. These types of activities enable the Israeli ecosystem and cybersecurity market to ensure we are ahead of the bad guys as the network continues to evolve,” said Eli Fainberg, VP Product at Forescout.

Additional Use Cases

The world’s first demonstration of an automated driving application supported by 5G Standalone network slicing with controlled network features for QoS (Quality of Service) was announced by Deutsche Telekom, BMW Group, Valeo, Qualcomm, and Ericsson. The partners looked into how 5G SA network slicing with various QoS features can provide successful automotive use case scenarios.
Federated Wireless and Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deploy private wireless at California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) to support the university’s 5G innovation network. The deployment will increase research capabilities, enhance bandwidth, and advance connectivity across the campus of San Luis Obispo, California.
Together with Combitech, Holmen Iggesund has launched a revolutionizing private 5G network that will enable Iggesund Mill to, step-by-step, become one of the most efficient and the most digitally advanced paperboard mills. This is the first step to connect the entire operations at the Iggesund Mill, and more areas will be included to secure the position as the most efficient and reliable mill in Sweden.
Nokia to support Nedaa on its journey to delivering next-generation 5G network capabilities by upgrading its networks and developing innovative use cases. Nedaa is targeting segment-oriented solutions by introducing network slicing to improve public safety and smart city services for concerned organizations and citizens, as well as lay the foundations for more advanced services such as metaverse. 
American Tower Company (ATC) seeks authorization from the Federal Communications Commission to test the performance of a private 5G wireless network within the confines of an indoor commercial mall in Las Vegas, with the ultimate objective of deploying of hybrid public/private 5G wireless networks. An illustrative practical application of this testing of the private 5G network would be the activation and control of robotic in-store cleaners within mall stores after hours.
JMA Wireless and telecommunications equipment supplier RIVA Networks are adding private 5G capabilities to the legacy cellular networks at the U.S. Air Force Research Lab (AFRL), Rome Research Site (RRS) — which is dedicated to command, control, and communications research and development — as part of the Department of Defense’s (DoD) ongoing modernization efforts.
