Abstract: Monitoring and detecting abnormalities in the 5G and Future FG wireless networks are a necessity for their secure use. Spectrum sensing is also a key element in effective and secure use of the unlicensed and shared spectrum bands that are becoming available to fully harness the power of the transformative use cases that 5G is making possible. In this talk we discuss the primary attack surfaces in 5G and how machine learning can play a major role towards secure use of 5G and Future G technologies. We conclude with an innovative and distributed spectrum sharing solution that utilizes reinforcement learning.

Bio: Dr. Arupjyoti (Arup) Bhuyan is the Technical Director of the Wireless Security Institute in the Idaho National Laboratory. The focus of his research is on secure implementation of future generations of wireless communications with scientific exploration and engineering innovations across the fields of wireless technology, cybersecurity, and computational science. Specific goals are to lead and focus wireless security research efforts for 5G and beyond with national impact, to secure communications for a nationwide unmanned aerial system and for 5G spectrum sharing with distributed scheduling. Arup has extensive industry experience in wireless communications from his work before he joined INL in October 2015. He received his Ph.D. in Engineering and Applied Sciences from Yale University. He is a senior member of IEEE.

About the Monthly Virtual Seminar Series:

The IEEE TCCN Security Special Interest Group conducts a monthly virtual seminar series to highlight the challenges in securing the next generation (xG) wireless networks. The talks will feature cutting edge research addressing both technical and policy issues to advance the state-of-the-art in security techniques, architectures, and algorithms for wireless communications.
