[Solution Brief] Open RAN Security

Overview
O-RAN is a new model for deploying RANs using virtualization and containerization techniques that have been successful for years in data center, cloud provider and Internet applications. In embracing these virtualization techniques, O-RAN inherits a legacy of data security features and services that harden these systems against hackers, enabling operators to have full visibility and control of their network’s end-to-end security.

In this solution brief, we discuss how by utilizing cloud native architectures that have been used for years by internet
service providers, data center operators and cloud service providers, O-RAN
architectures have built-in security functionality that has been hardened and improved by years of experience.
