Huawei’s 5G and LTE first to pass 3GPP’s SCAS testing and NESAS evaluation



According to a report published on the GSMA website, Huawei‘s 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) product gNodeB and LTE eNodeB has passed the DEKRA 3GPP’s Security Assurance Specifications (SCAS) testing and GSMA’s Network Equipment Security Assurance Scheme (NESAS) audit.

The DEKRA is the first security test laboratory in Europe authorized for SCAS testing and NESAS audit. Huawei has officially passed the 3GPP’s SCAS testing and NESAS audit evaluations and becomes the first 5G and LTE vendor.

After the completion of the development lifecycle, Huawei’s 5G RAN gNodeB and LTE eNodeB products have been evaluated with security tests defined by 3GPP, and the testing against those requirements allows the level of security of network products to be objectively measured.

Huawei 5G and LTE passed all tests including network product general security, air interface security, and basic vulnerability testing, such as data and information protection, air interface ciphering and integrity protection, robustness, and fuzz testing.

NESAS provides the right kind of standards for the communications industry. It delivers threat analysis, definitions for critical assets, security assurance methodology, and general security assurance requirements. The integrated assessment process avoids fragmented assessments and conflicting security assurance requirements in different markets.

For 5G networks, NESAS/SACS provides the right kind of standards: customized, authoritative, global, efficient, unified, open, and constantly evolving. Huawei supports GSMA and 3GPP in developing a global standardized security evaluation and urges the industry to widely adopt NESAS/SCAS to promote sustainable development on these global network security standards.
