Nokia launches ground-breaking cybersecurityfocused testing lab in the US

Nokia has announced the launch of its

Advanced Security Testing and Research ( ASTaR ) lab , located in Dallas , Texas . It is one of the first end-to-end 5G testing labs in the US focused solely on cybersecurity .
ASTaR ’ s holistic approach to researching and testing secure solutions and potential network threat mitigations will go beyond looking at individual network elements and also focus on the larger context of network use and abuse scenarios .
In the 5G era , the nature and scale of information networks are evolving , as are the nature and scale of security threats .
More avenues of attack are open to hackers , state actors and corporate espionage due to many types of interworking endpoints , extensive use of open-source software and large-scale use of 5G in a variety of industries .
Network security resilience must be maintained as the attack scenarios are constantly changing .
As the central lab dedicated solely to security forensics and research , ASTaR will use and develop cutting-edge tools and techniques to assess the security resilience of 5G networks , as well as its associated software , hardware and applications .
ASTaR will then use these assessments to address emerging security threats and lab researchers will engage with the cybersecurity community to identify emerging threat vectors and potential vulnerabilities .
