VISECO: An Annotated Security Management Framework for 5G
A novel security management framework is presented in this paper leveraging the current ETSI NFV MANO architecture and taking into account Software Defined Security principles. Specifically, the proposed VISECO framework allows developers, service providers to consider security across lifecycle: from embedding of security properties in the source code, parsing and interpreting for automatic deployment to active responding during operation. Mobile operator can use VISECO to secure its infrastructure and to provide ""Security-as-a-Service"" solution to potential customers such as IoT service providers. As an illustration, a framework prototyping and an IoT use case application are implemented and discussed.
