Title: SECURITY HANDLING FOR NETWORK SLICES IN CELLULAR NETWORKS
Abstract:
Methods and apparatus, including computer program products, are provided for mobility. In some example embodiments, there may be provided a method that includes determining whether to handover to a target base station, the determining based on whether a security level of the target base station satisfies a security threshold; enabling a relocation of a packet data convergence protocol entity to enable ciphering a tunnel to a user equipment, when the security level satisfies the security threshold; and inhibiting the relocation of the packet data convergence protocol entity to inhibit ciphering a tunnel to the user equipment, when the security level does not satisfy the security threshold. Related systems, methods, and articles of manufacture are also described.
