In response to the nation’s challenge to develop and validate 5G security protocols and data protection technologies, Idaho National Laboratory has established the INL Wireless Security Institute (WSI). The Institute’s mission is to lead and coordinate government, academic, and private industry research efforts fostering more secure and reliable 5G wireless technology. The institute draws on INL’s extensive expertise and unique facilities that have been used for nearly two decades to analyze, design, test, and improve cellular, radio, and satellite communication systems for government agencies and global wireless communication companies.

Through research partnerships, recognized leadership, and differentiating capabilities, INL is becoming a catalyst for discovery and the preferred provider for wireless security and resilience research and evaluation.
The Wireless Security Institute draws on this expertise to organize and facilitate bi-annual Wireless Security Workshops which provide a collaborative and innovative forum for the 5G Security community. The Workshops discuss critical security challenges, security needs and actions needed to strengthen collaboration and engagement between industry, government and academia.
