Virtualization, containerization and softwarization technologies enable telecommunication systems to realize multi-tenancy, multi-network slicing and multi-level services. However, the use of these technologies to such ends requires a redesign of the telecommunications network architecture that goes beyond the current long term evolution-advanced (LTE-A). This talk gives the view of fifth-generation (5G) telecommunication systems and architecture risk and vulnerability, and how to conceive to handle multi-tenancy, multi-network slicing and multi-level services security. On one hand, 5G telecommunication systems require to deliver the network flexibility, elasticity and traffic fluctuation in the network design. On the other hand, 5G convey two independent standard systems into one unity system using cryptograph and tokenisatiin technique to secure the subscribers, tenants, physical network elements and virtual network entities. A currently overview of 5G security is also given in this talk.
