Nokia announced the launch of DFSEC 2.0, an enhanced security program and establishment of an advanced security testing and verification laboratory: both designed to address the critical security needs of 5G end-to-end (E2E) networks.

Nokia has a long-standing commitment to creating secure products via its comprehensive, industry-leading Design For Security (DFSEC) process. DFSEC ensures that security is designed into every product from the start, undergoing rigorous security testing prior to commercial release. The newly launched DFSEC 2.0 program will build on this leadership in security development by focusing on additional verification work in the areas of E2E identity management, network slicing and SDN security, virtualization, and OAM, including patch management, said Nokia.

To support collaborative research and development across the DFSEC 2.0 program, Nokia is opening the "Future X Security" (FXSec) Lab. Built as an extension of Nokia's Future X network lab in Nokia Bell Labs in Murray Hill, this lab will be open to communications service providers and industries to facilitate joint testing and verification of industrial automation solutions in private local area networks (LANs) and across public wide area networks (WANs).
