Connected devices and mobile applications require wireless network access that is resilient, secure and able to protect individuals' privacy, and the 5G system is designed with these requirements in mind. This white paper provides an overview of the five core properties that contribute to the trustworthiness of the 5G system: resilience, communication security, identity management, privacy and security assurance. Ericsson believes that these properties of the 5G system contribute toward creating a trustworthy communications platform that is an ideal foundation on which to build large-scale, security-sensitive systems, including those used in industrial settings.
