Digital Trust for
& Networking

What are the top cyber risks in telecom and networking?

The wide area network (WAN) and broadband providers will be required to provide IoT connectivity to onboard and service millions of IoT devices and end-point platforms. The device-to-cloud, multi-access edge compute, and cloud-at-the-edge architectures will require trusted connectivity through big data pipelines (secure encrypted tunnels). The emerging 5G network and edge gateways will further increase demand for WAN bandwidth. The incumbent networking equipment vendors will face compliance challenges in the fabric of the edge cloud to meet data privacy and protection requirements.

How do you build a strong cybersecurity strategy for telecommunications?

The following actions are key components of a stronger telecommunications security posture:

  • Tamper-resistant edge protection
  • Secure encrypted data transport
  • Key protection and rotation with a hardware-based root-of-trust anchor (e.g. TPM, SIM)
  • Protective countermeasures in the perimeter-less ecosystem against nation-state attacks on mission critical public and national security infrastructures

How does DigiCert + Mocana keep telecom technology updated and fully integrated?

Our end-to-end cybersecurity system enables secure, cryptographically-signed over-the-air (OTA) and over-the-web (OTW) firmware updates. It allows you to integrate hardware or software-based roots of trust such as TPM, SGX, TrustZone, HSMs, SIMs, and MIMs and enable you to replace open source crypto software such as OpenSSL.

What telecom & networking devices are the top targets for cyberattacks?

Billions of IoT devices remain insecure due to the lack of essential embedded security. Telecommunications providers and networking equipment manufacturers must secure IoT networks, access points, gateways, and IoT devices. These IoT devices lack strong cryptographic controls—including multi-factor authentication, secure boot, secure update, and secure, encrypted communications—making them vulnerable to attacks.
