Securing Our 5G Future
5th Generation (5G) wireless promises to be a foundational next-generation technology that will be vital to enabling the next industrial revolution. The nation that leads in this technology could shift the global center of gravity for growth and innovation, and a secure 5G infrastructure is essential to U.S. security. The U.S. government must work collaboratively with industry and allied and partner nations to develop policy and technical solutions for secure 5G development.
Securing Our 5G Future will explore the opportunities and challenges of 5G in a world of highly globalized and competitive innovation. This project will establish an ongoing dialogue among policymakers, technical experts, and industry leaders while undertaking multidisciplinary analysis. The project will offer actionable recommendations for how U.S. policymakers can partner with the private sector and collaborate with allied and partner nations to ensure the development of secure 5G networks.
Securing Our 5G Future involves the following research programs:
The Center for a New American Security is closely following the evolving conversation around 5G and national security. As a result, the Center has developed a curated reading list with reports and essays on the current status of U.S., Chinese, and international initiatives in the development and deployment of 5G technologies.
