The Department of Homeland Security has issued a solicitation for novel technologies and methods designed to protect mobile communications networks from threats.

DHS said Monday a broad agency announcement published on FedBizOpps involves a research-and-development project focused on Secure and Resilient Mobile Network Infrastructure.

“The deployment of 5G technologies offers opportunities for innovation, efficiency, and economic growth, but it may also present risks we“™re not currently positioned to manage,“ said Christopher Krebs, director of DHS“™ Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and a 2019 Wash100 winner.

“This BAA solicitation and SRMNI R&D will help DHS work with industry to identify threats and vulnerabilities to mobile network infrastructure, and inform the development and adoption of security standards,“ Krebs added.

The solicitation has three technical topic areas: 2G, 3G and 4G network protections; integration of security into 5G networks and end-to-end protection of network traffic; and novel approaches to enhance government network traffic visibility into mobile devices.

The department“™s science and technology directorate and CISA will host a joint industry day May 16 to discuss the BAA.

DHS said it will accept proposals through June 26 and announce the selected offers Sept. 24.
