Abstract

While 5G is well-known for network cloudification with micro-service based architecture, the next generation networks or the 6G era is closely coupled with intelligent network orchestration and management. Hence, the role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is immense in the envisioned 6G paradigm. However, the alliance between 6G and AI may also be a double-edged sword in many cases as AI’s applicability for protecting or infringing security and privacy. In particular, the end-to-end automation of future networks demands proactive threats discovery, application of mitigation intelligent techniques and making sure the achievement of self-sustaining networks in 6G. Therefore, to consolidate and solidify the role of AI in securing 6G networks, this article presents how AI can be leveraged in 6G security, possible challenges and solutions.
